Abbas Accuses Israel of ‘Executing’ Child Terrorist

Ahmed Mansara carried out the attack in Pisgat Ze’ev along with his 15-year-old cousin Mahmoud, which left a 25-year-old man seriously injured and a 13-year-old Jewish Israeli boy fighting for his life in critical condition.

But in a speech broadcast on PA television, Abbas echoed the position of many Palestinians on social media, who have been distributing pictures of Ahmed lying wounded on the floor and claiming he was the victim of an unprovoked attack by Israelis.

Israel “executed the child Ahmed Mansara in cold blood, just like they do to other children in Jerusalem and other Palestinian territories,” Abbas said.
