On November 18, 2014, Al-Jadeed TV reported on celebrations in the streets of the Gaza Strip and the refugee camps in Lebanon, following the terror attack carried out earlier that day in a Jerusalem synagogue. People distributed sweets in the streets, raised axes, knives, and pictures of the two perpetrators, and praised the "heroic" and "high-profile operation."

Following are excerpts:

Reporter: This was the scene in the Gaza Strip – the old and the young took to the streets in the city of Rafah, proud of the two young men from Jerusalem, who were fed up with the repeated Israeli attacks on the Palestinians and on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and they wielded their knives and axes, in a high-profile operation that shook the enemy entity.

The celebrations spread from Palestine to the refugee camps in Lebanon.

Man with a plate of sweets: These are sweets to celebrate today's operation.

Shop-owner: These are the sweets to celebrate today's operation. We should be thankful to whoever carried out this operation. May God bless their souls and the soil in which they are buried.


Reporter: The high-profile operation was celebrated in the Badawi camp in Tripoli as well.

Man giving out sweets to drivers in passing cars: This is to celebrate the heroic operation in Jerusalem.

Reporter: The will of the people lies in resistance and armed struggle – and even when it is with knives and axes – until Palestine is liberated from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea.
