Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas sparked widespread anger in the Palestinian street, after he sent a telegram of condolences to Israeli President Isaac Herzog, against the background of the death of Corporal Barel Shmuel, who succumbed to his wounds after being wounded by a Palestinian on the Gaza border about ten days ago.
And the letter that Abbas sent to “Herzog” stated, “We extend our condolences and sympathy to Your Excellency, the victim of the violence on the Gaza border, which claimed the life of the soldier Barel Shmuel, and we pray for his forgiveness and mercy for the victim, and for you and his relatives patience and solace.”!
Mahmoud Abbas provokes widespread anger
A wave of anger prevailed on social media following the condolences offered by the Palestinian president, considering what he had done as a “betrayal” of the Palestinian cause and the blood of the martyrs who fell at the hands of the Israeli occupation in front of the Palestinian Authority’s silence on these crimes.
The Palestinian writer Nizam al-Mahdawi commented on Abbas’s message, saying in a tweet monitored by “Watan”, (The martyr usually does not receive a telegram of condolence from the head of all his work or whatever is available to him to issue telegrams of condolence for the killing of Zionists, to suppress the resistance and coordinate security with those who shed the blood of his Prime Time Zone and confiscate their lands and pollute most of them).
