Hamas reacted to the terror attack at Jerusalem synagogue on Tuesday morning, saying the deadly incident was in response to the death of a Palestinian bus driver found hanged in his vehicle earlier in the week.
Hamas called for additional attacks after two suspected Palestinian terrorists killed four people and wounded a number of others at the "Kehilat Yaakov" synagogue in Jerusalem.
Amid an onslaught of unfounded claims in the Palestinian media Monday that 32-year-old bus driver Yussuf al-Ramuni was murdered by Jewish settlers Sunday night in Jerusalem, an autopsy report concluded the driver’s death was self-inflicted, resulting from hanging himself inside the vehicle.
"The attack in Jerusalem is a reaction to the crime and execution of the martyr al-Ramouni and a reaction to the crimes of the occupation, the Hamas movement is calling for more revenge attacks," Hamas said on its official Al-Aksa TV.
