Senior Abbas adviser says Israel benefits from IS attacks

The religious affairs adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas claims that Israel is the principal beneficiary of yesterday’s Islamic State attacks on the Egyptian military in Sinai.

Supreme Shariah Judge Mahmoud Al-Habbash writes on Facebook that “I have no doubt that the main beneficiary – and perhaps the only one that really benefits – of the attack in Egypt is Israel. Simply put, this means that whoever harms Egypt is acting for the good of Israel, whether or not they want to.”

The comments are translated by Palestinian Media Watch.
