PLO Accuses Netanyahu of 'Terrorism'


The executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) convened for a meeting on Sunday, following which it accused Israel of terrorism and rejected Israel’s placing the blame on the Palestinian Authority (PA) for the kidnapping of the three yeshiva students in Gush Etzion.

The committee, headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, condemned Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for what it termed his "racist attack" on the PA and its leader using the kidnapping of “three settlers” as an excuse.
