The Algemeiner reports:  During meetings this week with terrorists released from Israeli prisons, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas vowed to “make every effort to end the suffering of our heroic brothers and release them from the occupation’s prisons so they can take part in building the homeland for which they sacrificed,” the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported on Wednesday.

The terrorists with whom Abbas met on Sunday, according to MEMRI, were 14-year-old Osama Zaidat, shot while attempting to stab Israelis in Kiryat Arba in September — and recently released from detention — and Imad Asaf, a member of Fatah’s military wing, the Al-Aqsa Brigades, who took part in the Second Intifada in 2000 and was recently let out of jail.

He also greeted members of the family of Muhammad Al-Jallad, who died of his wounds after being shot in November while attempting to carry out a stabbing attack at a checkpoint.
