Mahmoud Abbas called Israel’s raid of a West Bank prison an “unforgivable crime.” The Palestinian Authority president made his comments Wednesday, during a tour of the prison in Jericho. At least two Palestinians were killed in shootouts during Tuesday’s raid that transferred PFLP leader Ahmed Sa’adat and five of his comrades to Israeli custody.
