Netanyahu calls on Abbas to condemn terror attack that killed Israeli man

In separate talks with the foreign ministers of Ireland and the Netherlands, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to condemn the killing last night of Raziel Shevach.

Netanyahu urges Dublin’s Simon Coveney, and Halbe Zijlstra, from the Netherlands, to urge Abbas to cease paying salaries to Palestinian terrorists and their families.

“The prime minister said that here the true source of the conflict is revealed, which is the refusal to recognize the State of Israel in any boundaries accompanied by the encouragement of the murder of Israelis wherever they are,” Netanyahu’s office says.
