Abbas wife guarded

15 Jun, 2014

Amina Abbas, wife of Mahmoud Abbas, undergoes orthopedic surgery in a Tel Aviv hospital the day after the kidnapping, and for her own protection is subsequently placed in a private room heavy guard until her Sunday release. Israeli Knesset member Ayelet Shaked refers to the ironic timing of Abbas’ treatment:

This is precisely the difference between us: there are those who hand out candy when they kidnap children, and there are those who [medically] treat the enemy.
