Haniyya Phones Arrigoni’s Mother To Express Condolences
On Friday, the Prime Minister of the dissolved Government in the Gaza Strip, Hamas political leader Ismail Haniyya, phoned the mother of slain Italian activist and Palestine Solidarity Movement member, Vittorio Arrigoni. He expressed his sincere condolences and the condolences of the Palestinian people, and vowed to apprehend and prosecute the murderers.
Haniyya stated that the first moments after Arrigoni’s abduction, the government started investigating the issue and demanded that the kidnappers should ensure his safe and swift release. He added that the kidnappers killed Vittorio even before the deadline they set had ended, which indicates that it was their intention to commit murderrather than to negotiate.
