PA spokesman: Israel financially supports terror against Palestinians, including the burning of Palestinian infant Dawabsheh

Headline: “The occupation government funded the settlers with 270 million shekels”
     “Official Spokesman of the PA Security Forces Adnan Al-Damiri said that the occupation government funded the settlers and has paid them 270 million shekels in aid since the beginning of 2015, and also paid them salaries to support their actions and the terror they commit against Palestinian citizens.
He told Al-Hayat Al-Jadida that the occupation government supports what the settlers are doing at the checkpoints, the burning of baby Ali Dawabsheh by the settlers, the burning of mosques and churches, and attacks against Palestinians’ property.
Al-Damiri added that the direct firing at 22- year-old Muhammad Al-Atrash at the Tapuach checkpoint is an obvious execution, and the claim that he meant to stab the soldier is just an excuse for the crime.”

Note: Duma arson attack - On July 31, 2015, two Palestinian houses in the West Bank village of Duma were set afire by Molotov cocktails thrown through their windows. 18-month-old Ali Dawabsheh was killed in this attack, his father, Saad Dawabsheh, died of injuries 8 days later, and his mother, Reham Dawabsheh, died of injuries 5 weeks later. Israeli leaders and citizens from all sectors of society condemned this attack, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas that all Israelis were disgusted by the crime, adding, “We will not countenance terrorism of any kind.” He ordered the security forces "to use all means at their disposal to apprehend the murderers and bring them to justice forthwith."
There is suspicion that this was a nationalist attack carried out by Jewish extremists in revenge for Palestinian terror attacks. However, the crime remains unsolved with no named suspects.

Muhammad Al-Atrash attempted to stab an Israeli border police officer at the Tapuach junction in the West Bank on Aug. 17, 2015. He was shot and killed by another police officer at the scene
