Abbas’ spokesman: Child terrorist who stabbed 2, critically wounding a 13-year-old, was a Martyr, a victim of Israeli “execution"

Headline: ‘Abu Rudeina: The execution of child Manasrah (i.e., terrorist who stabbed 2) is a crime Israel is responsible for’
“Presidential Spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina stated that the execution of child Hassan Manasrah in front of the media, as child Muhammad Al-Dura was executed in the year 2000, is an abominable crime, and the legal, humanitarian and political responsibility for it is on the Israeli government. He demanded that the Israeli government catches those who committed this crime. Abu Rudeina stated: ‘If the government of Israel continues this escalation [of violence] by carrying out more grave acts of execution, the situation in the region will go out of control, and everyone will pay a heavy price for these Israeli crimes.’
Child Hassan Manasrah, 15, died as a Martyr yesterday and his cousin, Ahmad Saleh Manasrah, 13, was seriously wounded by the occupation’s gunfire, after, according to [the Israelis’] claim, they stabbed two settlers in the settlement of Pisgat Zeev, which is situated on the lands of Hizmeh and Beit Hanina in the north of occupied Jerusalem.”
