PNA “Strongly” Condemns Explosion in Afula

Palestinian National Authority strongly condemned the explosion took place in the city of Afula, west north of Jenin.

“Palestinian leadership strongly condemns the explosion took place in the city of Afula on Monday May 19,” the PNA said in an official statement issued Monday by Palestine News Agency (WAFA).

The PNA said the goal of such attack targeting Israeli citizens is to destroy the International peace efforts and all opportunities aiming implementation of the “Road Map” peace plan.

Palestinian leadership called on the Israeli Government for immediate cease-fire and to withdraw its forces from the Palestinian cities and stop killing of Palestinian civilians.

A Palestinian militant blew himself up at the entrance of a mall in the northern Israeli city of Afula when a female security guard tried to stop him/her from entering, Israeli sources reported.

At least four persons were killed and 47 others were wounded, Israeli medical sources said.
