JNS.org – Palestinian envoy to the United Nations Riyad Mansour on Saturday accused Israel of preventing the Palestinian Authority (PA) from aiding Syrian refugees.

Mansour claimed Israel has denied some 100,000 Palestinian Syrian refugees passage to PA-controlled territory through Israel. In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Mansour urged the U.N. Security Council to order Israel to allow the refugees’ passage so that the PA could absorb them in its territories.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said in response, “The Palestinian Authority’s cynicism knows no bounds. They are even willing to use the Syrian refugee crisis to create provocation. Israeli hospitals have so far treated over 1,700 wounded Syrians, while the Palestinian Authority has done nothing for them.”

    Muslims are slaughtering muslims in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, and around the world, and these idiots go to the UN to complain about Israel.

    That is the best the muslim world could do in the 21st century.

    How pathetic !!!!!!!

    The PA seems to have great difficulty in expressing the truth of the Jewish State’s efforts to ease the injuries of the Syrian people caught up in their chaotic and deadly country.
