Erekat: Israeli Sniper Shooting of Palestinians reflects Cruel Mentality

Commenting on a video of an Israeli sniper shooting an unarmed Palestinian civilian near the Gaza border and expressing jubilation at the act, Saeb Erekat, secretary general of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said on Tuesday that the incident reflects the cruel mentality of the Israeli military establishment.

Such hate and contempt for the life of a Palestinian is a reflection of the cruel mentality of Israel’s military occupation and the drive of its systematic shoot-to-kill policy against the Palestinian civilians, in defiance of their very existence on the land of Palestine and in a flagrant violation of all international and humanitarian norms and laws, Erekat said in press statement.
