Hamas on Sunday night welcomed the terrorist attack at the Central Bus Station in Be’er Sheva, in which an IDF soldier was murdered and nine other people were injured.

In a statement, Hamas spokesman Husam Badran said the attack is “another heroic action against the occupation, which is on high alert. Our people will not be afraid of anything.”

Badran added that the attack was a response to the "cold-blooded executions of the military of the occupation."

One terrorist carried out the attack. He was armed with a handgun and knife.

The terrorist shot a soldier and killed him, and then took his M-16 semiautomatic assault rifle and began firing it at a group of policemen, four of whom were injured.

Another man was also shot by security forces, in the belief that he was a terrorist. However, he apparently is an Eritrean infiltrator and he may not have had anything to do with the attack.
