Mahmoud Abbas comforts family of dead Jordanian terrorist Sayid Amro
The Palestinian Authority president sent a condolence message to the family of the Jerusalem attacker, who attempted to stab people passing the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem's Old City on Friday; Amro 'a martyr who has quenched the land of Palestine with his pure blood.'
Amro's family, which lives in the city of Karak, Jordan, received an official letter from Abbas, which describes Amro as "A martyr who has quenched the land of Palestine with his pure blood."
The Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned Israel for Amro's death, saying his killing was "an act of barbarism."
Following an incident, Israel presented further video evidence to Jordanian officials showing Amro brandishing two knives and threatening civilians passing by at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem's Old City.
