Palestinian libel: Israel stages knife attacks as an excuse to kill Palestinians and set up checkpoints
Official PA TV program Reporters in the Field, hosting Chairman of the Hebron Development Committee Imad Hamdan
Chairman of the Hebron Development Committee Imad Hamdan: "All of the cases in which people became Martyrs that took place within the city [of Hebron] are deliberate cases that are not based on the Israeli claim of 'he came to stab' and the like. They would kill a resident and place a knife next to his head. It could have been a vegetable knife or any kind of knife according to their claims. However, we have reached the conclusion that there is a precise plan of the occupation, according to which when they want to place a barrier or checkpoint or close a certain area – the residents are shot and become Martyrs."
