Nicholas Haros Jr., the son of a 9/11 victim, blasted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) over her remarks about the deadly 2001 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.

In April, a video of Omar went viral, which featured remarks about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, insisting that "some people did something."

What are the details?

In remarks during Wednesday's 9/11 memorial service in New York City, Haros said that there's no question about the people who "did something" on Sept. 11, 2001.

"I am here today to honor my 76-year-old mother, Frances, on the solemn 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks," Haros said. "Mom, we always miss you and love you very much. This day I also remember over 200 personal friends and co-workers that I knew that died."

Haros then turned his sights on Omar and her inflammatory remarks.

"'Some people did something,'" he quoted, citing Omar's comments, "said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota to support and justify the creation of CAIR. Today I am here to respond do you, exactly who did what to whom."

"Madam," he continued, "objectively speaking, we know who and what was done, there is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion? On that day, 19 Islamic terrorist members of Al Qaeda killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars in economic damage.

"Is that clear?" Haros asked — but he wasn't done there.

"But as to whom?" he continued. "I was attacked. Your relatives and friends were attacked. Our constitutional freedoms were attacked. And our nation's founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked. That's what some people did. Got that now? We are here today, congresswoman, to tell you and 'the squad' just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please."

Anything else?

Earlier on Wednesday, Omar tweeted about the 9/11 attacks and used the term "terror attack" in the message.

She wrote, "September 11th was an attack on all of us. We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil. I will continue to fight to make sure we care for the first responders and families who lost loved ones. #NeverForget."
