Two Arab terrorists who carried out an attack Thursday morning in Beit Shemesh appear to be linked to Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization.
The attackers wore shirts emblazoned with symbols of the Izz a-Din al-Qassam Brigades, police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld confirmed to JewishPress.com.
Izz a-Din al-Qassam Brigades is the military wing of Hamas.
Magdad Alhih and Mahmoud Ghanimat, both age 21, were residents of the village of Surif in the Hebron / Gush Etzion area.
One of the two terrorists was declared dead on arrival at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center. The second attacker is still living and is listed in serious condition.
