Knesset Plenum discusses Jerusalem synagogue massacre; Minister Perry: Result of PA`s incitement
During a heated plenary session on the deadly terror attack at a synagogue in Jerusalem, MK Basel Ghattas blamed the policies of Netanyahu`s government for the recent wave of Palestinian violence. In response, Minister Yaakov Perry said: ”The terror is a result of the incitement of the Palestinian Authority. The social networks blamed Israel for the murder of a bus driver despite the fact that a pathologist`s report determined that it was a suicide”
