RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Illegitimate PA premier in Ramallah Salam Fayyad has denounced the killing of five Israelis from the Itamar settlement near Nablus in the northern West Bank.

But Fayyad meanwhile failed to denounce the daily attacks and riots targeting Palestinians by armed Jewish settlers backed by Israeli armed forces as well as the Israeli authorities’ onslaught of arrests and home demolitions.

”There should be no doubt about our position relating to violence. We categorically reject it,” Fayyad said during a ceremony on Saturday to place the foundation block of the Beit Jala municipal building.

”We have repeatedly said that we reject and condemn the violence against our people,” he said. ”Violence does not justify violence.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier vowed to punish the ”perpetrators” and called on de facto Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas to give the Israeli forces full aid in the matter.
