PA Social Affairs Minister honors released child terrorists who attempted to carry out a stabbing attack

Headline: "The [PA] Ministry of Social Affairs and the [Palestinian] Bureau of Statistics honored the released children Al-Zaatari and Farah"

"[PA] Minister of Social Affairs Ibrahim Al-Sha'er and President of the [Palestinian] Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) Ola Awad honored the released children Ahmed Al-Zaatari and Shadi Farah (i.e., who planned to carry out a terror attack), 15, from occupied Jerusalem, and the members of the Jordanian band [Rooh Alsharq] who gave a unique artistic performance during the central ceremony for International Day of Persons with Disabilities in Ramallah…

Al-Sha'er said: 'An occupation that executes innocent children, arrests them and violates their basic rights, destroys schools, invades universities, and desecrates holy sites is an occupation that is morally bankrupt. It also proves that it has failed politically when it has reached the point of threatening the life of [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas, who has always believed in peace and worked for it throughout his life.’"

Shadi Farah and Ahmed Al-Zaatari – 12-year-old Palestinian children arrested with a knife in their possession that they planned to use for a terror attack in Jerusalem on Dec. 12, 2015. Farah and Al-Zaatari served 3 years and were released on Nov. 29, 2018.
