Hamas welcomed Friday morning's terrorist attack at the Temple Mount in which a group of terrorists opened fire and attempted to stab Israeli security forces.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhi said the attack "was a natural response to Israeli terrorism and their defilement of the al-Aksa mosque."During the attack, three terrorists fired at Israeli troops near the entrance to the holy compound at the Lion's Gate in Jerusalem's Old City. Police forces responded with fire and shot and killed the assailants. Three Israeli were left wounded after the exchange.

So far, the attackers identities have not been released. It was not initially clear if the attack had been coordinated by any terrorist organization.
