Celebration was the reaction in Gaza over the murder of 8 and wounding of 11 Israeli Students Thursday evening.
Gaza's streets filled with joyous crowds of thousands... following the terror attack at a Jerusalem rabbinical seminary...

In mosques in Gaza City and northern Gaza, many residents went to perform the prayers of thanksgiving.

Armed men fired in the air in celebration and others passed out sweets to passersby.

MFA response to terror shooting in Jerusalem
Tonight’s murder [Thursday] of yeshiva students during a religious event expresses at its most deplorable the fundamentalist-extremist foundations, in the name of which Palestinian terrorism operates. Israel will never allow terrorism to achieve its goals. Such abominable terrorist attacks must strengthen the free world’s understanding of the nature of the terrorist threat. A clear, decisive and uncompromising stand is necessary against such terrorism.

Israel is at the forefront of the struggle against terrorism and will continue to defend its citizens, who are exposed to this threat on a daily basis. Israel expects the nations of the world to support it in its war against those who murder students, women and children, by any means and with respect for neither place nor target.
