Credit for the brutal attack is being claimed by Fatah, the so-called ‘peace partners’ with Israel, the same PLO responsible for the last intifada against Israeli citizens. This is what ‘peace’ looks like.

Israel Insider —Residents of the Gaza city of Rafah on Saturday poured out on the streets to celebrate the terror attack in Itamar, where five family members were murdered in their homes on Sabbath eve. Their joy, one resident said, “is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank.”
Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, however, said he “clearly and firmly denounces the terror attack, just as I have denounced crimes against Palestinians. Palestinian PM Mahmoud Abbas has not made a statement on the murders.
IDF and security forces have scoured the area of the massacre since late Friday night, arresting 20 Palestinians from the villages of Awarta, Zababdeh, Sanur and Siliya. The IAF employed unmanned aerial vehicles in an effort to search for the suspects.
Hamas accused the Palestinian Authority’s security apparatus of arresting three of its activists nearby Qalqilya and Jenin. “The report of five murdered Israelis is not enough to punish someone,” stated Hamas Spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri, adding, “However; we in the Hamas completely support the resistance against settlers who murder and use crime and terror against the Palestinian people under the auspices of the Israeli occupation soldiers.”
Despite the comments and activities of the PA, an unverified report indicates that the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, the military wing of Fatah — the party of Abbas and Fayyad — is taking credit for the killings. A group spokesperson told a Palestinian news agency that a cell of militants infiltrated the settlement of Itamar and committed the attack. The spokesperson stressed that the attack “came as a response to Israel’s continues hostile policy toward the Palestinian people.”
