Presidency holds the Israeli government responsible for the murder of five Palestinians

President Mahmoud Abbas’s Office has strongly condemned the murder of five Palestinians early today morning by the Israeli occupation forces in Jerusalem and Jenin and held the Israeli government fully responsible for the escalation.

“These crimes are the latest in a series of [Israeli] violations and field executions against our people.

The continuation of this policy will lead to an explosion of the situation and to more tension and instability,” said the President’s Office in a statement.

The Presidency urged the international community to take action to stop the escalation by holding war criminals to account.

Hamas spokesman Abdel Latif al-Qanou responded to the deadly clashes saying “the blood of the martyrs of Jerusalem and Jenin at dawn today will continue to fuel the continuation of our people’s revolution against the occupier and a renewed determination to uproot and sweep it from our land.”
