In a video that was posted on the Sanad News YouTube channel on March 30, 2022, Rim Hamarsheh, the aunt of Palestinian terrorist Diaa Hamarsheh, who on March 29 killed five Israelis in a shooting spree in Bnei Brak, Israel, said that the family is sad that he is gone but happy that he is a martyr. Asking Allah to be "pleased" with Hamarsheh, she praised his confidence during the attack, adding: "Not everyone possesses this kind of courage." For more about Palestinian celebrations of the Bnei Brak shooting, see MEMRI TV Clips Nos. 9463, 9467, and 9470.

Rim Hamarsheh: "May Allah be pleased with Diaa. You cannot find young men like this [anymore]. We were surprised when we heard the news, but when we saw the video how he walked with confidence, as if he was walking in his own home, and every shot hit its target... We cannot even describe how we feel. We are sad that he is gone and not with us anymore, but at the same time, we are happy that he is a martyr. What he did is not something that anyone is capable of doing. Not everyone possesses this kind of courage."
