In a rare statement, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas condemns the deadly shooting attack that left five Israelis dead in Bnei Brak tonight.

Ramallah had refrained from publicly discussing the recent terror wave against Israelis at all, remaining silent after deadly attacks in Beersheba and Hadera that took place over the past week.

In a statement, the PA leader “expressed his condemnation of the killing of Israeli civilians tonight, emphasizing that the killing of Palestinian and Israeli civilians only leads the situation to deteriorate.”

“The cycle of violence shows that a comprehensive, just and stable peace is the shortest, most correct path to security and stability for both peoples,” Abbas says.
