The father of a Palestinian gunman who killed two Israeli civilians in a terrorist attack at a Tel Aviv bar praised his son's actions Friday morning.
"[Palestinians] will see victory with the help of Allah, you will get liberty and independence. I pray that Allah would free al-Aqsa from the sullied occupiers," said Fathi Hazem, father of 28-year-old Ra'ad Hazem who was eliminated by Israeli security forces after an hours-long manhunt.
Fathi senior is a key figure in Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement in the city of Jenin in the northern West Bank and a former officer in the Palestinian security forces.
