PLO official: Israel supports ISIS, commits terror against the Palestinians

Headline: “Bassam Abu Sharif: Ban Ki-Moon took a stance against the Palestinian people”
“[Palestinian] National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) member and personal advisor to the late President Yasser Arafat, Bassam Abu Sharif… said that confronting ISIS cannot be separate from confronting all terrorists, headed by the Israeli government which carries out state terror against an entire people and keeps it under occupation. Bassam Abu Sharif added: ‘We express our condolences to the French people over the innocent victims who fell victim to ISIS terror, and call for it to confront the terror of the Zionist government against the entire Palestinian people. Likewise, we warn them against the deceit of the Israeli government, which has supported and supports ISIS secretly as well as openly, and there are videos of Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu visiting wounded ISIS [terrorists], whom the Israeli government took care of in its hospitals. Some of these injured left after they recovered, and some of them might be in France and the US.’”
