PA Police head denies saying anything about terror attack that killed 2: "False news items such as these are meant to harm the image of senior officials of the Palestinian [PA] Security [Forces]"

Headline: “Maj. Gen. Atallah denies giving any sort of statement regarding Martyr Omar and the operation in Salfit”
         “[PA] Police Commissioner Maj. Gen. Hazem Atallah denied giving any sort of statement to any media outlet regarding the operation (i.e., terror attack) in Salfit or Martyr (Shahid) Omar Abu Laila (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2). Atallah emphasized that false news items such as these are meant to harm the image of senior officials of the Palestinian [PA] Security [Forces], at a time when the members of our people are being subjected to persecution of the most despicable kind, violence, and murder everywhere. He added that this is an attempt to harm the determination of our political leadership, which is rejecting ‘the deal of the century’ (refers to US President Donald Trump’s as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan –Ed.). He called on all media bodies and prominent figures on social media to pay heed to accuracy before publishing news items.”
