The Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terrorist organization “acclaimed Tuesday’s anti-occupation attack carried out by a Palestinian protester in Nablus province” in a statement posted Wednesday to the internet as a “key step” in the fight against Israel.

The Islamic Jihad said “such attacks are key steps to boost anti-occupation resistance throughout the national liberation struggle and face up to Israel’s sadist policies against the Palestinian people.”

In its statement the terror group dubbed the attack “a natural response to the crimes perpetrated by the Israeli occupation against the Palestinians in Nablus and the rest of the occupied territories.

“This is another proof that our people will never give up armed resistance against the Israeli occupation and will rise up for their rights no matter the sacrifices,” the statement added.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad did not, however, claim responsibility for the murder.
