The President of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA), Mahmoud Abbas, condemned this Friday the attack deployed on Thursday night in the Israeli capital, Tel Aviv, which left two dead and 12 wounded.

Abbas reaffirmed that “killing Palestinian and Israeli civilians only leads to a further deterioration of the situation” and that the attack only threatens the stability of the territory.
He added that this situation creates insecurity in citizens, “especially in this holy month of Ramadan and the upcoming Christian and Jewish holidays,” explained the President of the ANP.
He stated that the successive and recent acts of violence reaffirm the need for a permanent and just peace that guarantees the security of the Israeli and Palestinian peoples.
Although the occupiers detained the Palestinian Raad Fathi Hazem, a resident of one of the refugee camps in the West Bank, and identified him as the attacker, Abbas stressed that this fact cannot justify attacks by Israeli forces against his people.
The attack took place on Dizengoff Street, popular for its commercial activity. It is the fourth in the last three weeks and unfolds a new wave of violence in Israel.
The Minister of Defense of that country, Benny Ganzt, declared in recent hours that “operations against the wave of terrorism in attack, defense and intelligence” will be expanded.
