Ariel mayor: Delegitimization of settlements caused attack

Ariel Mayor Ron Nachman on Saturday blamed Palestinian and left-wing delegitimization of West Bank settlements for the Friday night Itamar terror attack in which five Israelis were killed. Nachman's comments came in an interview with Israel Radio.
Nachman stated that Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salaam Fayyad calling for a boycott of goods manufactured in the settlements as well as Israeli newspapers "separating settlers from Israelis living on the other side of the Green Line" were responsible for inciting the terrorists to carry out the attack in Itamar.
