Palestinian Red Crescent honors murderers of 3 Israelis, cancels celebration "out of respect for the blood of the Martyrs who ascended to Heaven"

Headline: “Out of respect for the blood of the Martyrs: The Red Crescent cancels the celebrations of its golden jubilee”
    “The Palestinian Red Crescent announced the cancellation of the celebrations for the golden jubilee of its establishment, which were to take place today (Thursday) [Dec. 13, 2018] at 6:00 p.m. at its general headquarters in El-Bireh, and this is out of respect for the blood of the Martyrs (Shahids) who ascended to Heaven recently after being shot by the Israeli occupation (refers to terrorists Saleh Barghouti and Ashraf Na’alwa who were killed resisting arrest, and terrorist Majdi Mteir who was killed while committing a stabbing attack; see notes below –Ed.).
The organization said in a statement that [the cancellation] is due to the situation in the occupied Palestinian territories, which has been caused as a result of the Israeli operations against members of our people, the occupation forces’ recurring invasions of cities and villages in the northern districts (i.e., the West Bank), the arrest of many young Palestinians, and the threats of the settlers – who are supported by the occupation soldiers – to eliminate [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas.”
