PA PM libels Israel, claims two terrorist stabbers were “executed” according to policy of “opening fire to kill”

PA Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh: "The [Israeli] killings of young Palestinians have also expanded according to the policy of opening fire to kill, or the policy of summary execution (sic.). Last week, we lost two Martyrs who were shot by the occupation at the two checkpoints of the colonies Ariel and Gush Etzion."

The “young Palestinians” Shtayyeh refers to are terrorist Atallah Rayyan and another unidentified terrorist, who both attempted to stab Israeli soldiers.

Atallah Muhammad Rayyan – 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist who ‎attempted to stab an Israeli female soldier near Ariel on Jan. 28, 2021, before ‎another soldier shot him.‎

The other as of yet unidentified terrorist attempted to stab Israeli soldiers at the Gush Etzion Junction south of Jerusalem on Jan. 31, 2021, before the Israeli soldiers shot him in self-defense.

Summary executions - ‎The PA and Fatah routinely present Israel’s killing of terrorists in self-defense during ‎the terrorists’ attacks as “summary executions” carried out “in cold blood” for no ‎reason.‎
