JNS.org – The Palestinian Authority (PA) has named a street on the outskirts of Ramallah after a Palestinian terrorist who killed two Israelis in early October.

Muhannad Halabi was a 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who killed two Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3. Halabi, who was eventually shot dead by Israeli police, also injured Bennett’s wife Adele and their 2-year-old son in the attack.

The purpose of the street naming was “to honor Halabi, who carried out a stabbing and shooting operation against settlers in the Old City of occupied Jerusalem,” the Palestinian news agency Donia Al-Watanreported.
