Iran condemns Israeli assassination of Palestinian minister

Tehran, Dec 10, IRNA – Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham on Wednesday condemned the Israeli regime for assassination of Ziad Abu Ein, a minister of the Palestinian national unity government.
Afkham extended condolences to the Palestinian officials and nation and said that the assassination was another example to prove the criminal nature of the Israeli regime.

Repetition of such crimes perpetrated by the Israeli regime have been included in reports of independent international human rights organizations and will give the Palestinians stronger determination to liberate the occupied territories of Palestine from the Israeli occupation and will further boost their national unity.

Ziad Abu Ein, also a leading member of Fatah movement, headed a Palestinian Authority department dealing with Israeli settlements and the Israeli separation barrier.

He was killed by the Israeli assassination group targeting the Palestinian activists earlier on Wednesday in the course of Palestinian demonstrators in northern Ramallah.
