Hamas Praises Attack: 'Natural Reaction'

Hamas praised Tuesday's bulldozer attack, saying that it was a "natural reaction" to Israeli actions.

Israel's Army Radio reported the Tuesday statement from Hamas leaders. Ghasan Abu-Tir, the terrorist who drove his bulldozer through traffic on Jerusalem's King David Street, is related to a Hamas politician currently jailed in Israel.
