Official Palestinian Authority TV reported on the terror attack, calling it a "stabbing operation" and accused Israeli Prime Minister of "incitement" for blaming the terror attack on the ongoing incitement by PA and Fatah. Palestinian Media Watch has documented the ongoing incitement by both Fatah and the PA, including the recent explicit promotion of stabbing attacks:
