May God have mercy on them and place them in the uppermost garden in Paradise.”

On all the images appears the logo of the 52nd anniversary of “the Launch” (Intilaqa) of Fatah, which features the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas, a keffiyeh (Arab headdress), and the Fatah logo with a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of “Palestine.”

Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar was Arafat's deputy and among the founders of Fatah. He was the Commander of Al-Asifa, Fatah’s military unit, and member of Fatah’s Central Committee and PLO’s Executive Committee. He also was the Commander of Operations of the terrorist organization Black September and involved in the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972). He was killed by Israel in 1973.

Kamal Adwan and Kamal Nasser were both senior members of Black September who were killed by Israeli forces in April 1973. Kamal Nasser was also the spokesperson for the PLO and Fatah. Kamal Adwan was responsible for Fatah terrorist operations in Israel.
