PA hails Swedish calls to probe Israeli crimes

February 15, 2016

The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Wednesday hailed the Swedish Foreign Minister’s response to the large number of Palestinian deaths, calling her “humane and courageous”.

Israel has summoned the Swedish ambassador over Foreign Minister Margot Wallström’s call for a probe into Tel Aviv’s “extrajudicial executions” of Palestinians.

Anadolu Agency said that it received a statement issued from the PA foreign ministry welcoming Wallström’s comments.

The PA ministry called for the adoption of an international stance similar to Sweden, away from “political fear”. The PA also stressed that it is “eager to keep up with the peace process” with the Israelis.

According to the statement, the Israeli government is practicing “political terrorism against the Swedish foreign minister”.

Wallström’s remarks were condemned by Israeli officials, including Deputy Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely who said that Israel will close its doors to visits from Swedish officials, according to Israeli newspaper Jerusalem Post.
