The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, the so-called “military wing” of Fatah headed by Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, is welcoming Friday’s shooting attacks against Israelis in the Hevron area.

In the two attacks, two teens were wounded by terrorist gunfire near the Cave of the Patriarchs, and a soldier was wounded in a separate shooting attack at Beit Anun.

The movement said in a statement on Sunday, "We, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade-Palestine, welcome the heroic operation in Hevron and praise the heroism of its perpetrators."

"The Brigades consider this action a natural response to the occupation’s recurring crimes against our unarmed Palestinian people and its violation of the sanctity of our holy places," the statement continued.

The group has claimed responsibility for a series of recent shooting attacks directed against Israeli soldiers and civilians, including the horrific murder of Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin, who were shot dead in front of their children.

The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade has in the past also called to “reclaim Israel by force”.
