Official PA daily implies that Palestinian terrorists who killed parents in front of their children were "moral" for not killing the children

Headline: "Hebron operation: The Palestinians have again not killed children or women"
     "Israeli media sources publicized yesterday [Nov. 13, 2015] evening the details of the shooting operation (i.e., terror attack in which 2 Israelis were shot to death) which took place on Route 60, which leads to the settlement Otniel, south of Hebron, that led to the death of 2 settlers, and the injury of 3. The sources said: 'The perpetrator of the operation prepared an ambush at the side of the road and waited for an Israeli car to come. When it came, he shot at it and retreated from the scene.' ... Israeli media sources noted that the perpetrators forced the car to slow down, shot 10 bullets at it, and then verified the death of the settlers. Likewise, they emphasized that they saw a boy and 3 women in the car, but didn't injure them, similar to what happened in the Nablus operation (i.e., Hamas terror attack in which 2 parents were shot to death in front of their 4 children) less than 2 months ago."
