Hamas: TA attack a valid response to 'aggression'

The Palestinians' new Hamas leaders called Monday's suicide bombing in Tel Aviv a legitimate response to Israeli "aggression." "We think that this operation ... is a direct result of the policy of the occupation and the brutal agression and siege committed against our people," said Khaled Abu Helal, spokesman for the Hamas-led Interior Ministry. Earlier, Moussa abu Marzouk, a Hamas leader abraod, told Al-Jazeera television that "the Israeli side must feel what the Palestinian feels, and the Palestinian defends himself as much as he can."
