Palestinian Arabs on Wednesday evening celebrated the shooting attack in a market in Tel Aviv in which four people were murdered and at least six wounded.

Meanwhile, Palestinians in Tulkarem were handing out candy to passing cars in celebration of the terrorist attack:

Elsewhere, Palestinians took to the streets in celebration: 

Senior Hamas terrorist and the deputy leader of the group, Ismail Haniyeh, also praised the murderous attack at the Sarona Market.

Haniyeh called the terrorists "heroes" on his Twitter account.

Hamas later wrote on Twitter that the terrorist attack was a “heroic operation” and added, “this is the first surprise in store for the Zionist enemy during Ramadan.”

One of the two terrorists was captured immediately after the attack and a second terrorist was neutralized following a police search.

The terrorists who were reportedly dressed as haredi Jews are from the Yatta village in the Hevron area.

IDF forces on Wednesday night, shortly after midnight, closed the entrances to Yatta, apparently in preparation for a raid on the village.
