Abbas extends “warm condolences” to families of "Martyrs" from the “peaceful popular uprising” (i.e., 2015-2016 terror wave)

Headline: “The president: We are committed to do justice with the teachers”
“President Abbas headed a PLO Executive Committee meeting yesterday [March 1, 2016]…
The president extended warm condolences to the families of the Martyrs (Shahids) of the peaceful popular uprising. He said: ‘May Allah have mercy on our Martyrs and let them dwell in his Paradise. Freedom for our prisoners, Allah willing. We must endure, because relief will come eventually, and we will achieve a State of Palestine with Jerusalem as its capital.”

Note: The terms "all means," "peaceful uprising,” and “popular uprising/resistance" are often used by PA leaders and officials to refer to events that include violent and deadly terror against Israeli civilians such as rock-throwing, stabbings and even shootings. See Mahmoud Abbas' reference to murderous terror as "peaceful" during the 2015-2016 terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”), which included numerous stabbing attacks
