Hamas: Hebron attack "natural response to Israel's crimes"
Islamic Hamas movement's armed wing al-Qassam Brigades said on Tuesday that the attack near Hebron in southern West Bank, where four Israelis were killed, "is a natural response to the Israeli occupation's crimes", dpa reported.
The militant group itself did not claim responsibility for the attack in the statement sent by telefax to the media.
"The armed operation near Hebron is a natural response to the crimes of the Israeli occupation and its settlers," said the statement. "It is a reiteration that the armed Palestinian resistance is present despite the war to uproot it."
