Itongadol.- Prime Minister says incitement continues because the PA has not yet condemned the killing of the 40-year-old man who was on his way with his family to a Seder.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu lashed out at the Palestinian Authority on Tuesday evening, saying that the shooting death of a man on his way to a Passover Seder on Monday was a result of Palestinian incitement.
"This reprehensible murder of a man who was traveling with his family to a meal for the Festival of Freedom is the result of the incitement for which the Palestinian Authority is responsible," the prime minister said.
"The incitement of the Palestinian Authority continues in that it has yet to see fit to condemn this abominable and reprehensible act," he added.
Netanyahu said the Palestinian Authority continues to constantly broadcast – in it\’s official media – programs that incite against the existence of the State of Israel.
The man was killed and two others wounded after a Palestinian fired shots at a family vehicle on Route 35 near the Tarkumia checkpoint west of Hebron, police said.
The 40-year-old, a police officer, was pronounced dead after attempts at resuscitation, while his 28-year-old wife was in moderate condition after suffering injuries to her upper body, according to Magen David Adom. She was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem for further treatment.
