Presidency Condemns Ongoing Escalations

RAMALLAH, June 16, 2014 (WAFA) – Palestinian presidency condemned, in a statement Monday, the latest escalations in the West Bank, including the kidnapping of three Israeli settlers and the ongoing series of violations, by Israeli soldiers and settlers, against innocent Palestinian civilians and against prisoners, held in Israeli jails.

It also condemned the Israeli army killing of a Palestinian youth near Ramallah on Monday.

The presidency affirmed the need to not resort to violence by any party, particularly since President Mahmoud Abbas’ position is to continue with the extensive efforts to ensure the release of Palestinian prisoners, held in Israeli jails, when a final peace deal with Israel is signed.
