Mahmoud Abbas comforts family of dead Jordanian terrorist

Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas sent a letter of condolence Monday to the family of Sayid Amro, a Jordanian terrorist who was eliminated by Israeli Border Police soldiers after attempting a terror stabbing attack in Jerusalem on Friday.

Amro’s family, which lives in the city of Karak, Jordan, received an official letter from Abbas, which describes Amro as “A martyr who has quenched the land of Palestine with his pure blood.”


The Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned Israel for Amro’s death, saying his killing was “an act of barbarism.”

Following an incident, Israel presented further video evidence to Jordanian officials showing Amro brandishing two knives and threatening civilians passing by at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City.
