The Palestinian Authority has condemned the recent murder of an Israeli police officer, Baruch Mizrahi, who was shot dead in the West Bank city of Hebron. Nevertheless they claim Israel wouldn't condemn the killing of a Palestinian.

Times of Israel quotes the Palestinian Minister of Religious Affairs saying that, "It is painful [the killing of that Israeli police officer]," before going on to say, "We condemn the death of every human being. The principle of killing and violence is completely unacceptable."
However he also said that he expects "to hear a condemnation from the Israeli side after a Palestinian is killed, but that won't happen."
This Israel Hayom report shows that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had, before this PA apology, blamed the murder of Mizrahi on incitement to terrorism fomented by the Palestinian Authority.
"This reprehensible murder of a man who was traveling with his family to a meal for the Festival of Freedom is the result of incitement for which the Palestinian Authority is responsible," the Prime Minister stated.
In contrast to the Palestinian Authority's apology for this action, the Prime Minister of the Gaza Strip, Hamas' Ismail Haniyeh praised the attack claiming that it "brought back life to the path of resistance."
