Headline: “Fatah praises the legendary resolve of prisoners Karim and Maher Younes in the occupation’s prisons”

“The Palestinian National Liberation Movement Fatah saluted the legendary resolve of prisoners Karim and Maher Younes (i.e., terrorists, murdered 1), after 35 years of their imprisonment in the occupation’s prisons…
[Fatah] Movement Spokesman Fayez Abu Ita… said that their great sacrifice, their brave standpoints, and their adherence to the principles and values of the revolution are a source of pride and appreciation for all members of our people, and that they constitute a defense of the freedom and honor of all humanity. Abu Ita emphasized that Fatah adheres to the immediate release of the two Younes heroes, since Israel has refused to release them in all of the prisoner exchange deals… He emphasized that their release is an obligation placed on humanity, which is a top priority of our people and constitutes one of the highest priorities of [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas.”

Karim and Maher Younes - Israeli Arab cousins serving a 40-year sentence for kidnapping and killing Israeli soldier Avraham Bromberg in 1980. They were originally sentenced to life in prison, but Israeli President Shimon Peres reduced their sentence in 2012.
