At least ten illegal Israeli settlers were killed and a dozen others were wounded in the aftermath of a shooting that took place in Nabi Yaqub, occupied Jerusalem al Quds.

Iran PressMiddle East: The shooting follows a deadly Zionists raid in the occupied West Bank on Thursday in the Jenin refugee camp in which nine Palestinians were killed.

After Friday’s shooting, the Magen David Adom emergency service said it was treating 10 wounded, some in critical condition. TV footage showed several victims lying on the road outside the synagogue being tended to by emergency workers.

The Zionist regime's police said the suspect had no previous “security record”.

The Zionist media mentioned that the Palestinian shooter is called Fadi Ayyash, adding that he was driving a car before carrying out the heroic operation which lasted 20 minutes.

There was no initial claim of responsibility. 

In Gaza, Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qassem told the Reuters news agency Friday’s attack was “a response to the crime conducted by the occupation in Jenin and a natural response to the occupation’s criminal actions”. He stopped short of claiming the shooting.
