Palestinian Authority joins Hamas in declaring Tel Aviv gunman as 'martyr'

January 9, 2016 19:01

The Palestinian Authority, Hamas and other Palestinian groups declared Nashat Milhem a shaheed (martyr).

The PA Ministry of Health initially added Milhem, who is an Israeli citizen, to its list of “martyrs” who were killed by Israelis during the current wave of terrorism, which began in early October.

However, the ministry on Friday night removed Milhem’s name from the list. The ministry explained that it documents the names of Palestinian “martyrs” only in areas that fall under its jurisdiction, namely the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem.
