Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas strongly condemned on Wednesday the assassination of a security officer in Jenin and said he has ordered PA security forces to take drastic measures to capture the perpetrators.

Col. Hisham al-Rikh, 40, a top officer with the PA’s Preventive Security Force in Jenin, was shot dead late Tuesday near the city’s refugee camp.“We strongly condemn this despicable and cowardly crime, which is strange to the traditions and morals of our people,” Abbas said in a statement issued by his office. “We assure our people that we will deal severely with this suspicious crime.”
