US Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt condemned Sunday’s terrorist attack on Twitter, retweeting a Jerusalem Post story about reports that said Palestinians distributed sweets in Khan Yunis to celebrate the attack.
“We condemn today’s brutal attack by a Palestinian terrorist who murdered at least 1 Israeli & injured others near Ariel,” wrote Greenblatt, US President Donald Trump’s special representative for international negotiations.
Greenblatt slammed the PA for its “pay-for-slay” policy at the UN Security Council just over a week ago, where he defended Israel’s decision to deduct, from the taxes it transfers every month to the Palestinian Authority, the amount of money the PA pays to terrorists and their families each month.
“Disgustingly, but not surprisingly, Hamas & PIJ [Palestinian Islamic Jihad] welcomed the attack & no doubt the Palestinian Authority will reward the terrorist under its pay for slay policy,” he wrote. “I’m praying for the families of the victims & a speedy recovery for the injured.”
