The al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, denied any responsibility for the attack. Its spokesman insinuated that the killings could have been carried out by the Jewish settlers themselves:
“Palestinian National Movement Hamas official Ezzat Al-Rashak said that the movement is not responsible for the murder of the five family members from the Itamar settlement.
Al-Rashak confirmed that harming children is not part of Hamas’ policy, nor is it the policy of the resistance factions.”
The ‘Big Peace‘ blog posted: “Curiously, while the Hamas statement in the English article raised the possibility of the act being carried out by settlers, in the Arabic article there’s no doubt that the attacker was a Palestinian ‘mujahid’.”

However, the Hamas Arabic article had a different take on the Itamar massacre where five members of the Fogel settler family were murdered:
Five Zionists Killed in Stabbing in the Usurper (Settlement) of Itamar
(al-Qassam, 12 March 2011)
Five Zionist usurpers were killed the morning of Saturday, 12 March 2011, in a knife-stabbing carried out by a Palestinian in the usurper (settlement) of Itamar east of the city of Nablus.
Our correspondent in Nablus reported that a Palestinian mujahid was able to break into the usurper (settlement) of “Itamar” south of Nablus in the occupied (West) Bank, and stabbed five Zionist usurpers.
Zionist media sources said that “A Palestinian broke into the usurper (settlement) between the hours of 9:30 – 11:00 PM, and killed five usurpers from one family while they were sleeping.” They confirmed that the perpetrator of the act was able to escape.
“Five usurpers” — one of them a three-month old baby girl, and her two brothers aged 4 and 11, and their parents. Stabbed to death on their own homes. Five enemies.
