JNS.org – Palestinian terrorist organizations praised Wednesday’s Hezbollah terrorist attack on a military convoy in northern Israel that killed two Israeli soldiers and wounded seven others.

Hamas representatives in Lebanon, where Hezbollah is based, called the attack a “natural response to recurring Zionist aggressions,” the Jerusalem Post reported. Additionally, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri, said Hezbollah has “the right to respond to Israeli occupation, especially following the last aggression on Syria,” in reference to a reported Jan. 18 Israeli airstrike that killed Hezbollah terrorists and an Iranian general. The Al-Quds Brigades of the Islamic Jihad terror group, meanwhile, welcomed what it called the “blessed” Hezbollah attack on Wednesday.

Hamas terrorist leader Mohammed Deif recently sent a letter to Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah expressing his condolences for the deaths of Hezbollah terrorists in the Jan. 18 airstrike.

The Israeli strike on Monday targeting an anti-aircraft missile battery in Syria was an “important” event that sent a message...

“All of the forces of resistance must band together and unite against the Zionist enemy and its accomplices,” Deif wrote.

Edgar Vasquez, a spokesman for the US State Department, said America “strongly condemns Hezbollah’s attack today on [the] Israel Defense Forces near the border between Lebanon and Israel, in blatant violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701 (which was enacted to end the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war in Lebanon).”

“We support Israel’s legitimate right to self-defense,” said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psak, who asked both sides in the conflict to “respect the [UN-drawn] Blue Line [border demarcation] between Israel and Lebanon.”
