Hamas Praises Jerusalem Bus Bomber as 'martyr'

Thursday, 21 April 2016 05:21 AM

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — The Islamic militant group Hamas is praising a Palestinian as a "martyr" for carrying out a bus bombing that injured about 20 people in Jerusalem this week.

In an announcement on one of its websites, Hamas names the bomber as Abdel Hameed Abu Srour.

The statement says Srour was a member of Hamas, but stops short of claiming responsibility for the attack.

About 20 people were injured in the bombing, some seriously, including a teenage girl who suffered severe burns. A hospital spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday one man later died, but did not name him.

The blast came amid a seven-month wave of Palestinian attacks that has killed 28 Israelis and two Americans. At least 190 Palestinians, the majority said by Israel to be attackers, were killed in that time.
