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 suspected Palestinian terrorists killed four people and wounded a number of others at the "Kehilat Yaakov" synagogue in Jerusalem.

"The attack in Jerusalem is a reaction to the crime and execution of the martyr [Yussuf] 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.
