Report: Terrorist Murderer Claimed to be PA Spy

One of the terrorists responsible for the murder of Asher and Yonatan Palmer claimed that he was employed as a Palestinian Authority spy at the time, Haaretz reports. According to the report, which was based on documents obtained by the paper, terrorist Wael Irja said he had been paid up to 1,000 shekels a month to provide information on fellow PA residents.

Irja said he had told his PA handlers about his involvement in the attack.

The information was not noted in the charges against Irja because the Shin Bet declared that he was lying.
