PA TV demonizes Israel: Israel has “systematic” policy to “murder Palestinian children whose only sin was love of the homeland”

Official PA TV News, on the funeral of Laith Abu Na’im who was killed during violent confrontations with the Israeli army, interview from the funeral with Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki

Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki: “I saw the scene of the murder, two meters away. Therefore, when a human being turns into a savage, and the one who is armed with all types of weapons attacks a young person of such an age and kills him – he loses his humanity. The flow of the young people and [former PLO and PA Chairman Yasser] Arafat’s slogan ‘Millions of Martyrs are marching to Jerusalem’ are the guarantee for the continuation, and the resolve of the leadership against all of these challenges.”
Official PA TV reporter: “Laith [Abu Na’im] reached his final resting place today, after he was shot and murdered at point-blank range by the hostile soldier, and this was as part of the systematic Israeli policy to murder Palestinian children whose only sin was love of the homeland.”
