While Israeli PM Netanyahu visits the brave soldiers and police officers who have been injured saving the lives of those they protect, the head of the Palestinian Authority (P.A.) has been busy with very different meetings. JNS reports that P.A. head Mahmoud Abbas hosted families of terrorists at his office:
Abbas and the families discussed issues including the fact that the 11 terrorists’ bodies are still being held by Israel. The families demanded that Abbas pressure Israel to return the remains. He reportedly said the Palestinian Authority was doing everything it could on the issue.
The meeting took place just hours after three Palestinian terrorists carried out a shooting and stabbing attack near Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate that killed 19-year-old border policewoman Cpl. Hadar Cohen and seriously wounded another border policewoman. All three terrorists were killed in the attack.
