In his first public comments since the brutal murder of an Israeli woman in the West Bank settlement of Otniel on Sunday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Monday that he was opposed to violence and killing of anyone irrespective of their ethnic or racial background.

“We are concerned over every drop of blood from any person,” Abbas said.
