The Islamic Jihad said on Thursday that the organization supports the struggle for Jerusalem, after it was revealed that the suspect in the shooting of right-wing activist Yehuda Glick on Wednesday night in Jerusalem was a member of the organization.

"The Palestinian people and Jerusalem residents are in a situation of self-protection against the occupation forces and extremist settlers, who are trying to control Jerusalem," Islamic Jihad spokesperson Daud Shihab said. 

Shihab told Palestinian News Agency Ma'an that "the attempt to hurt Rabbi Glick is a natural response of Palestinians who are trying to protect the Temple Mount."

Shihab continued and said "Glick incited the death of Palestinian children and cooperated in the murder of Muhammad Abu Khdeir, and therefore he got what he deserved."

He continued and said that his organization supports the Intifada in east Jerusalem. "Just like we were at the heart of the struggle in Gaza, that's what we'll do in Jerusalem."

The suspect, 32-year-old Moataz Hejazi, was killed by police on Thursday morning.
