Ramallah - Ma'an - The Palestinian Minister of Religious Endowments criticized on Friday what he described as "the growing number of Palestinian on Palestinian revenge attacks."

Sheikh Jamal Bawatneh was speaking during Friday prayers at the in At-Tashrifat mosque in the presidential headquarters in the city of Ramallah, attended by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

The minister said that Palestinians taking the law into their own hands and attacking the community is considered nationally, religiously and morally a sin, noting that retribution in Islam is the task of the master and not people.

He added that any act of extra-judicial revenge attack is illegal, calling on people to seek justice through the proper security agencies, rather than taking the law into their own hands.

Bawatneh also denounced the attacks on citizens and Palestinian National Authority institutions and staff in the Gaza Strip, referring to the attacks on the courts and staff of the Ministry of Religious Endowments.
