Mesika: Terrorists Encouraged by Backing of Unity Gov't


Gershon Mesika, head of the Shomron Regional Council, said on Monday night that the terrorists who carried out the attack at the Tapuach Junction were encouraged by the international backing of the Hamas-Fatah unity government.

"The terrorists are getting a boost from the recognition by the U.S. and Europe of the terrorist government of Hamas and the Palestinian Authority," said Mesika.

"It is time that Israel do what is good for Israel and stop thinking about what the world will say. On this occasion I would like to strengthen the IDF and its soldiers who stand guard day and night and protect the residents of Judea and Samaria and all of Israel," he added.
