Mother expresses deep pain over death of her son, who carried out stabbing attack

Official PA TV News reported on the death of terrorist Issam Thawabteh, murderer of Hadas Buchris

Official PA TV News reporter: “Summary execution, this is the old-new custom of the occupation. Here at the junction of the Gush Etzion settlements that were built on the blood of the [Palestinian] residents.”
Terrorist Issam Thawabteh’s mother: “He told me: ‘I’m going to pray mother.’ I answered him: ‘Goodbye.’ He told me: ‘I’m going to pray’ and did not return. I thought that perhaps he went to his brother’s house. After an hour or two, they publicized his name on television. I, how shall I put it, lost my mind. In seconds he was lost to me. I do not know how I lost him. I went crazy. If he had told me, I would have gone with him.”
