Abbas condemns Vienna terror attack

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas condemns last night’s terrorist attack in Vienna, which has so far left four dead and at least 15 wounded, according to a statement released by his office.

“The Presidency expressed its strong condemnation of this terrorist act, and its permanent rejection of all forms of violence,” the statement says.

“The Palestine Liberation Organization’s policy is to reject all forms of violence and terrorism, whether committed by individuals or armed groups or state terror, especially since our Palestinian people still suffer from occupation, terrorism, oppression and violence,” Abbas’s office says.

The statement further expresses the PA President’s “deepest condolences to the Austrian government, the Austrian people, and the families of the victims.”
