Palestine | Presidency Condemns Israeli Killing of Intelligence Officers and Former Prisoner


The Palestinian Presidency strongly condemned the dangerous Israeli escalation that resulted in the killing of two PA Military intelligence officers and a former prisoner by Israeli undercover Special Forces' gunfire in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin, warning of its repercussions.

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, the spokesman for President Mahmoud Abbas, warned that the ongoing Israeli occupation’s practices and violations of the rights of Palestinian people, its attacks and daily killings, the latest of which took place in Jenin today, and its violations of the rules of international law, will create tensions and a lead to a dangerous escalation.

Abu Rudeineh held the Israeli government responsible for this escalation and its repercussions, calling on the international community to provide protection for the Palestinian people.

He further denounced Israel’s settlement expansion in all Palestinian lands in violation of all international legitimacy resolutions, and the extensive incursions of settlers into many areas of the Palestinian governorates.

The Palestinian presidency’s spokesperson urged the US administration to pressure Israel to stop its aggression and escalations, to avoid dragging matters into an uncontrollable situation.
