JAFFA, Israel – A large Palestinian family living in Jordan decided to celebrate a man who recently carried out a shooting attack in Jerusalem with a “wedding.” The event was attended by hundreds of guests to honor his “death as a martyr.”

The celebration was the initiative of the well-known, Palestinian Abu Sneine family, who originate from Hebron. Jordanian locals were invited to “to take part in the wedding of the martyr Misbah Abou Sbeih.” Hundreds arrived to participate in the “wedding ceremony,” which was reportedly held at the family’s home in the center of the capital of Amman.

Two Israelis were killed and more were wounded in the shooting spree carried out by Abou Sbeih in the streets of Jerusalem. After a chase and shootout with police, a 30-year-old police officer was killed as was a 60-year-old

The day after the attack, Israel Police arrested Abou Sbeih’s daughter, accusing her of expressing joy and identification with her father’s actions.
Ynetnews reported:

A video of the terrorist’s daughter was made public, in which she came out in defense of her father and stated how proud she is of his actions, which ultimately led to her father being shot and killed by Israel Police.

“We’re very happy and proud of our father,” she can be heard and seen on the recording. “My father is a great man. Our relationship, as father and daughter, was excellent.”

Despite the terrorist having had ties to Hamas, the Fatah party also responded to the killing, ascribing the attack to Israeli policy regarding Jerusalem and Temple Mount. The local Fatah branch in East Jerusalem additionally announced a day of mourning in memory of the terrorist.
