Palestinian Foreign Ministry condemns attack on nationals in US

Ramallah, Nov 27 (Prensa Latina) The Palestinian Foreign Ministry strongly condemned on Monday a shooting attack on three nationals in the US state of Vermont and demanded justice from that country's Government.

The Ministry of Foreign and Expatriates condemned in a statement the attack that injured students Hisham Awartani, Tahseen Ahmed, and Kinan Abdel Hamid.

The three, who were wearing a keffiyeh, the traditional Palestinian scarf, were shot in Burlington while on their way to a Thanksgiving dinner at the home of a relative.

According to US press reports, the victims are in their 20s. Two of them are clinically stable, while the third has more serious injuries.

The Ministry called on US authorities to arrest the perpetrator and bring him to justice while wishing the young people a fast recovery.

The attack took place in the context of growing Islamophobia and anti-Semitism in the United States due to the ongoing war between Israel and the Islamic Resistance Movement, whose epicenter is in the Gaza Strip.
