Jihad-sympathizers attend funeral of Muslim terrorist eliminated in Jerusalem
Violent riots broke out in Issawyia following the funeral of a convicted Muslim terrorist who was shot and eliminated after shooting fireworks at forces last Thursday during a counter-terrorism operation in the Arab neighborhood of East Jerusalem.
According to the Police, the terrorist’s family met the conditions set to hold the funeral.
Following the funeral, additional Muslim terrorists arrived at the neighborhood and began throwing rocks, firebombs and fireworks at Police and Border Police forces.
Riots broke out Thursday night in East Jerusalem when 22-year-old Muslim terrorist Mohammed Abid was shot and eliminated after shooting fireworks at security forces during a counter-terrorism operation in Issawyia.
The masked terrorist emerged in one of the alleys and set off the fireworks from close range posing a real and immediate danger to the policemen’s lives, the force said in a statement. One of the officers targeted the terrorist, neutralizing the danger.
Abid was a known Muslim terrorist who served a five-year sentence for plotting to carry out a shooting attack and was recently released from prison.
Over the past few weeks police have entered Issawiya on a nightly basis in a bid to track down Muslim terrorists members of a PLO terror cell believed to be at large in the neighborhood.
