OC­CU­PIED JERUSALEM — Pales­tinian Pres­i­dent Mah­moud Abbas has con­demned a deadly Pales­tinian shoot­ing at­tack that killed three Is­raelis, two days af­ter it took place.

Abbas spokesman Na­bil Abu Rdeneh pub­lished a state­ment con­demn­ing the at­tack late on Thurs­day on the Pales­tinian gov­ern­ment-run Wafa news agency site. A Pales­tinian killed three Is­raelis and se­ri­ously wounded an­other be­fore he was shot dead at a West Bank set­tle­ment.

Abbas has long been a critic of vi­o­lence, but has re­mained quiet in the past when at­tacks against Is­raelis took place in the West Bank. —
