Palestinian terrorist groups issued a joint statement Friday condemning abductions of foreigners and attacks on Palestinian government buildings.
The terrorists have been responsible for a series of kidnappings of foreigners in recent months, and the statement indicated they were giving in to growing public pressure to halt such vigilante actions.
In the statement read by masked, armed men, the terrorists did not acknowledge involvement in the abductions. "We condemn the kidnappings of foreigners and we consider this a violation of the Palestinian national agreement," the statement said.
