On February 26, Hamas held a rally in Rafah, the Gaza Strip, in which militants enacted an attack on "Nablus settlers" driving a car and attacks on "Israeli soldiers," in which their throats were slit and their weapons taken. A life-size model of an Israeli bus full of civilians and soldiers was set alight. The footage was taken from the Al-Jazeera network, the Hamas-owned Al-Aqsa TV and the Facebook page of the Rafah Media network.
Announcer: "These are the settlers in Nablus. They are causing mayhem in the land of our West Bank, sowing destruction in it. But there is absolutely no way that our heroes will just let them be. But there is absolutely no way that the men of the West Bank will let them sow corruption on our land. They lie in wait for them. Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! The heroes of the heroic Itamar attack are carrying out their operation in Nablus. They are carrying out this heroic operation, with the utmost honor and good faith. They killed the riotous settlers, but left the children unharmed."
