Six Palestinians were killed in last week's terror attacks at New Zealand mosques, the Palestinian Authority Foreign Affairs Ministry announced over the weekend.
The ministry said that it was able to identify the Palestinian victims thanks to contacts between the PA embassy in Australia and the New Zealand Foreign Affairs Ministry, security forces and the Red Cross.
The PA ministry identified the six victims as Abdel Fattah Qassem al-Dakka, Ali al-Madani, Ata Mohammed Elayan, Amjad Hmeid, Osama Abu Kweik and Kamel Darwish.
The ministry said that another six Palestinians were wounded in the shooting attacks: Wasim Daraghmeh, Elien Daraghmeh, Basel As'ad, Shehadeh al-Sinawi, Mohammed Elayan and Khaled Hijawwi.
