Ya'alon: Abbas responsible for escalation in violence and terror

October 30, 2014 09:34

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said on Thursday morning that the attempted murder of Yehuda Glick is another phase of the escalation of violence by Palestinians against Jews and the State of Israel.

Ya'alon continued and said that when PA President Mahmoud Abbas spreads lies about the Jewish right to land and to practice religion, the result is terror like what happened to Glick. "It is more proof why we are constantly saying: the conflict is not about territory, rather about the refusal of Palestinians to live in Israel with restrictions," he said.

"I am calling for restraint in Jerusalem. Security forces will continue to catch terrorists and hold a strong hand against them."
