On killing two Palestinian civilians by Israeli occupation forces in occupied Jerusalem, Hamas movement states the following:
The yards of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the neighbourhoods of Jerusalem have been witnessing an escalating Palestinian outrage due to calculated and brutal crimes that Israeli settlers and occupation forces perpetrate repeatedly against our holy places and the Palestinian people. Indeed, the Israeli violations will lead to acts of resistance against the occupation.
The Israeli killing of two Palestinian guys in Jerusalem proves that the Palestinians consider Jerusalem a red line. In addition, Hamas warns against going ahead with the Israeli schemes and perpetrating criminal acts against Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque.
We hail Palestinians who stay in Al-Aqsa to defend the mosque against Israeli violations. We call upon our people to visit Al-Aqsa intensively, especially in this critical period when Al-Aqsa is facing an enormous danger.
