Terrorists behind Eilat terror attack are “the oppressed victim[s]”

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. Israel responded to the attacks by targeting the leaders of the organization behind the terror attack, the Popular Resistance Committees, killing 5 members of this terror organization and a child in an air strike on Gaza.
Regular columnist Adli Sadeq, PLO ambassador to India:
 "Of course we have no faith in the Israeli justifications for any bombing, and therefore there is no proof that those who died in Rafah are indeed the people who sent those who carried out the infiltration and shooting operation in the Negev. However, a Palestinian - whether he sets off to infiltrate and have a confrontation or whether he is bombed in his home - is the oppressed victim in this situation, from beginning to end."
