West Bank – Sparking outrage in the Palestinian Authority on Wednesday, is the death of a Palestinian minister who died shortly after clashes with Israeli troops in the West Bank.

After Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the death of Ziad Abu Ein, a PA minister without portfolio, as a “barbaric assassination'” that would not be tolerated, the PA’s foreign minister too, lashed out at Israel.

Foreign Minister Riad al-Maliki promised that the Jewish state would “pay for the killing of Abu Ein.”
