According to the investigation, it appears that the two terrorists come from a family that is associated with Fatah and that some of their relatives committed terror attacks against Israelis in the past. One of their relatives participated in the murder of the Dikstein family in 2002.
According to different reports from Ramallah and Qatar, it appears that the two were Hamas terrorists. Palestinian news outlets reported that “Hamas announced that the two terrorists belonged to the organization.”
“We bless the double terror attack that was carried out by Khalid and Muhammad al-Muhamra,” Hamas announced in a statement. “Both of them are Hamas members from Yatta near Hebron.”
