A faction of Fatah's al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigade claimed responsibility for Monday's terror attack in the Hebron Hills in which Israeli police officer Yehushua Sofer was killed, reported the Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

The attack came as a response to the raid on the Gaza aid flotilla, according to the report.

Sofer, 39, was buried Monday evening in the military section of the old Beersheba cemetery.

Two other police officers were injured in the attack, as they were driving northwards on Route 60 in the West Bank, south of the of settlement of Bet Hagai.
