Israel used Eilat terror attack to detract attention from government problems

On August 18, 2011, several Palestinian terrorists armed with rifles and bombs carried out a series of coordinated terror attacks near Eilat killing 6 civilians, a soldier and a security officer. The following is a response to the terror attack published in the official PA daily:
 "Spokesman for the dismissed Hamas government, Taher Al-Nunu, said: 'The Palestinian government denies the Israeli accusations voiced by [Israeli Defense Minister, Ehud] Barak concerning the operation (i.e., terror attack) which took place in Eilat. It emphasizes that the Gaza Strip is not connected to what happened in Eilat.' He added, 'We view these accusations as an attempt to get out of the internal Israeli crisis.'"
