    While Hamas called for escalating all forms of resistance in the West Bank to punish the Israeli occupation for its crimes against the Palestinians.

    “A new crime, committed by the occupation against a Palestinian family, led to the martyrdom of Osama Mansour and seriously injured his wife in the west of Occupied Jerusalem,” the movement’s spokesman Hazem Qasem said.

    “Such ongoing crimes entail escalating all forms of resistance to punish the occupation, make it pay dearly for its crimes, and curb the aggressive behaviour of its army and settlers,” he added.

    The Israeli military said in a statement that the Mansours’ vehicle accelerated towards a group of soldiers “in a way that endangered their lives”, and that the soldiers responded with gunfire “to thwart the threat”.
