Headline: “Governor of Nablus district: We ‎will not agree to the return of the loss of ‎security control”‎
‎“Nablus District Governor Akram Rajoub ‎emphasized that they will not allow the ‎loss of security control to return, and will ‎not allow the popular uprising to stray ‎from its peaceful path. Akram Rajoub said yesterday [Nov. 19, ‎‎2015] in an interview with Radio Mawtini: ‎‎‘The events in the Palestinian arena ‎need to remain under control so that we ‎do not expose our people to danger, as ‎this situation shows the Israeli enemy to ‎the world in its most abominable form ‎and brings benefits to our people.’‎
He added: ‘We will not agree to a return of ‎the loss of security control of the ‎Palestinian arena, as this is a real call to ‎the occupation to act with all its power to ‎kill and destroy the elements of the ‎Palestinian people.’‎ Rajoub said: ‘The [PA] government and ‎civilian committees in the Nablus district ‎will rebuild the homes of the prisoners’ ‎relatives that the occupation forces ‎destroyed (i.e., the homes of the Henkins’ ‎murderers) in the last few days.’”‎

The Henkin murders - Israelis Naama ‎and Eitam Henkin (also an American ‎citizen) were murdered in a shooting attack ‎on Oct. 1, 2015, on the road between ‎Itamar and Elon Moreh in the West Bank. ‎Their four children, aged 9, 7, 4, and 4 ‎months, were also in the car and witnessed ‎the murders, but were not physically ‎injured. ‎
Five suspects in the murder, members of a ‎Hamas terrorist cell, were arrested by ‎Israel and confessed to the murders. The ‎leader of the group, Ragheb Ahmad ‎Muhammad Aliwi, has served time in an ‎Israeli prison for security related crimes.‎
