IDF chief says Palestinians view terror as ‘political tool’

In a Knesset State Control Committee meeting, IDF chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot tells Israeli lawmakers that the “Palestinians view terrorism as a political, social and religious tool to achieve goals,” according to Army Radio.

Terrorism is a “daily occurrence that we are grappling with in Judea and Samaria,” he says, using the biblical term for the West Bank.
