¡¡¡¡GAZA, May 18 (Xinhuanet) -- Palestinian National Authority (PNA) Information Minister Nabil Amr on Sunday denounced the suicide bombings that hit Jerusalem early Sunday, killing seven Israelis and injuring 26 others.

¡¡¡¡Amr said the PNA strongly denounces these blasts and is taking serious measures to avert such attacks and create a right atmosphere to resume peace talks with Israel.

¡¡¡¡A first bomber blew himself up on a bus in annexed east Jerusalem in the early hours of Sunday, killing seven other people, and a second bomber only killed himself in a premature explosion which took place nearby almost simultaneously.

¡¡¡¡Two Jewish settlers were killed by another suicide bomber Saturday night in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and two Palestinian militants infiltrated another settlement in the northern West Bank overnight, wounding two residents before being shot down.

¡¡¡¡Amr reiterated the PNA's commitment to the immediate implementation of the roadmap which was mapped out by the Mideast Quartet Committee grouping the United Nations, the United States, the European Union and Russia. Enditem
