Hamas praised an attack on two Israelis in which their car was set on fire after it entered the Palestinian city of Ramallah.

Footage from the incident appears to show a large crowd of Palestinians surrounding a burning Israeli car in Ramallah’s Al-Manara Square. The pair were escorted to safety by Palestinian security forces.

“The citizens left accompanied by Palestinian security forces in coordination with the [Israeli] security forces in the area,” the Israel Defense Forces said.

It is unclear how the two Israelis found themselves in Ramallah, located in the West Bank, known as Judea and Samaria, but Israeli media is reporting that they strayed in by mistake. Israelis are banned by the Israeli military from visiting areas under Palestinian control due to safety concerns. 

They were lightly injured during the attack. The pair were later questioned by Israeli police and then released from custody.

The Hamas terror group that governs the Gaza Strip praised the attack as an “act of resistance.”

“This must continue with force and spread all across the West Bank,” said Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum.
