A Hamas-linked media outlet has released a sickening video dramatizing the murderous shooting attack at Tel Aviv's Sarona Market last Wednesday.
Four Israelis were killed in the attack by two Arab terrorists from Hamas, who opened fire on civilians at cafes and bars at the popular tourist site.
Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups praised the massacre, which also left several people seriously wounded.
In the video produced by the pro-Hamas Miqla Media network, and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the terrorists are portrayed as noble heroes, who heeded calls to attack Israelis during Ramadan.
The short film follows one of the terrorists – played by an actor – and shows him dressing up as a haredi Jew before setting out for Tel Aviv armed with a submachine gun.
Initial reports from the site suggested the two terrorists – both of whom were captured alive, one after he was shot and injured by security guards – were dressed as Orthodox Jews. Subsequently it was revealed that they dressed in suits and skinny ties, not as haredim, possibly attempting to pass off as young businessmen.
The slick propaganda video is reminiscent of clips inciting violence produced by the Islamic State (ISIS) jihadist group which, like Hamas, has urged Muslims to murder non-Muslims during Ramadan. It even ends with a jihadist slogan promising "paradise" in the afterlife for jihadists slain during attacks – "Reward is certain, if Allah wills it" – together with the social media hashtag "Al-Aqsa Intifada".
