Video - PLO official: Killing Israeli parents of 4 children is "national duty"
Official PA TV program The State of Politics hosted PLO Executive Committee member Mahmoud Ismail:
Official PA TV host: "Are they [killers of Henkin couple] from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military wing) or from Hamas?"
PLO Executive Committee member Mahmoud Ismail: “There is no need to return to the argument and dispute about who carried out the operation. There is no need to announce it and boast of having done it. One fulfills his national duty voluntarily, as best as one can.” [Official PA TV, Oct. 6, 2015]
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 near Nablus. Their four children, aged 9, 7, 4, and 4 months, who were in the car and witnessed the murders, were not physically injured. Although the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades of Fatah originally took credit, five Hamas terrorists were arrested by Israel and confessed to the murders.
