PA TV: Israeli police “executed” terrorist as “declaration of war on our people within the Palestinian Interior (i.e., Israel)”

Official PA TV News, on terrorist Yaqub Abu Qi’an who was shot and killed while carrying out a car ramming attack, in which he murdered an Israeli police officer and wounded another

Official PA TV newsreader: “After the Israeli police executed Yaqub Abu Qi’an (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1), it demolished eight homes in the village of Umm Al-Hiran (i.e., illegal buildings were demolished) and removed their residents as a step of escalation that constitutes a declaration of war on our people within the Palestinian Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel).”
Official PA TV reporter: “Residents of Umm Al-Hiran did not expect that their village would turn overnight into a scene of war and destruction, and into a scene of a cold-blooded murder during which Yaqub Abu Qi’an, 48, was murdered while on his way to evacuate his home before its demolition, after he received an immediate demolition order. But the bullets of the Israeli police were faster; they rained a shower of bullets on him and he fell as a Martyr (Shahid).”
