On Wednesday, the High Court ruled that the bodies of Muhammad Ahmad Muhammad Jabarin, 29, Muhammad Hamed Abed al-Atif Jabarin, 19, and Muhammad Ahmad Mafdel Jabarin, 19, were to be returned to their families after they were shot dead while carrying out the attack that claimed the lives of two police officers.
Relatives of the three young men received the bodies from police in the early hours of the morning.
One relative said, "We did not want to talk too much about what happened, and we did not know at all that they were planning to shoot policemen in Jerusalem. If we had known, we would have stopped them."
However, another resident of Umm al-Fahm described the terrorists as martyrs. "Anyone who says they're terrorists supports the racist, occupying government," the resident said. "The government destroys our homes, harms the mosques and muezzin, supports 'price tag' attacks and refuses to destroy the homes of Jewish terrorists. You shouldn't be surprised; the government is the one hurting Arab citizens."
