The timing of the announcement was condemned by a Palestinian official who suggested it was created to undermine peace efforts.

"Of course, the Palestinian Authority is refusing to condemn the murder and the same authority will now pay financial compensation to the murderers' families", he said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting. Netanyahu said while addressing Kushner, who was seated in the front row of the crowd.
