PA daily op-ed: Israel killed murderers of 3 Israeli teens to silence the truth

Marwan Al-Qawasmi and Amer Abu Aisheh were Hamas terrorists who kidnapped and murdered three Israeli youths on June 12, 2014: Eyal Yifrach,19, Gilad Shaar,16, and Naftali Frenkel,16. The Israeli boys' bodies were found by Israeli security forces near Hebron on June 30, 2014. The two terrorists were killed on Sept. 23, 2014 during an exchange of fire with an Israeli army force that was attempting to arrest them.
Op-ed by Yahya Rabah , columnist for the official PA daily and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza, accused Israel of killing the terrorists to prevent them from speaking:

"In the early hours of the morning... Israel assassinated the young men Marwan Al-Qawasmi and Amer Abu Aisheh... The two young men were Hamas members from Hebron who had been 'accused' of kidnapping and murdering three Israeli settlers on June 12 [2014]...
With the assassination of the young Marwan Al-Qawasmi and Amer Abu Aisheh, the kidnapping operation, which served as an excuse for the [Gaza] war (i.e., Israel's Operation Protective Edge, 2014) entered a new stage of obscurity... It is possible that, were they alive, they would tell us and the world that the operation of kidnapping and murder of the three settlers is unrelated to the official Israeli version. Therefore, the execution of the young men, Marwan and Amer, amounted to the murder of the truth."
