Palestinian leadership condemns Tel Aviv stabbings


08:40, August 30, 2011

RAMALLAH, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- The Palestinian leadership on Monday condemned a Palestinian attack in which seven Israelis were injured in the central city of Tel Aviv.

"We condemn the attacks against civilians, including the incident that was committed in Tel Aviv at dawn," said a statement by President Mahmoud Abbas's office.

A Palestinian resident of the West Bank stole an Israeli taxi, hit an Israeli police checkpoint and stabbed people who gathered around him with a knife, wounding seven, Israeli reports said.

The statement meanwhile condemned Israeli attacks against people in Gaza and daily raids in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and stressed that such incidents will not stop the Palestinian leadership from going to the United Nations General Assembly next month to request a vote on an independent Palestinian state.

Israel and the United States oppose the Palestinian bid to obtain recognition from the UN and say that this recognition should be made through a negotiated agreement.
