Family of Terrorist Who Murdered Israeli Rabbi Rewarded With Fully-Furnished Apartment

Such rewards are a blatant encouragement of terrorist violence, and a clear violation of signed agreements

By |

The Palestinian Authority's blatant encouragement of terrorist violence continues apace.

In January, a gang of Hamas terrorists brutally murdered Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a father of six young children who was widely loved in his small Samarian Jewish community.

A month later, Israeli security forces tracked down the terrorist to his hideout in the PA-controlled town of Jenin.

Ahmad Nasser Jarrar was killed after resisting arrest and engaging in a shootout with IDF soldiers.

Last week, it was reported that Jarrar's family had been rewarded for his "heroic" actions with a new, fully-furnished apartment.

The PA's official news agency Wafa reported that the apartment had been provided by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' own Fatah party.

"Our people is united and consolidated and does not forget its martyrs who gave their lives for Palestine," said Fatah Jenin secretary Nour Al-Din Abu Al-Rab, in remarks translated by MEMRI.

Israeli forces had demolished Jarrar's family home after his heinous attack on Shevach.
