Hamas claims responsibility for Jerusalem shooting
(dpa) - Hamas announced over loudspeakers in Gaza mosques Friday that it was claiming responsibility for the shooting attack in Jerusalem, which killed eight students in a Jewish religious school.
The radical Islamic movement, however, as yet issued no written statement formally claiming credit for the shooting attack.
An Arab-Israeli group calling itself the Freedom People of the Galilee had earlier told Hezbollah's al-Manar television in Beirut that it was behind the attack.
The shooter's family erected a mourning tent in their East Jerusalem neighbourhood Friday, adorned with flags from both Hamas and Hezbollah.
