Fatah official praises Black September terrorists, “heroic” Palestinian prisoners

Headline: "Zaki: We are prepared on the level of the large national events, and the Palestinian right will overcome"
    “Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki said that the Palestinian right will undoubtedly overcome the Israeli lie, and emphasized that it is necessary to be prepared on the level of large national events. Zaki said yesterday [April 11, 2017] in an interview with Radio Mawtini for the 44th anniversary of the death as Martyrs (Shahids) of leadership members Muhammad Yusuf Al-Najjar (i.e., Arafat's deputy and Black September terrorist organization commander of operations), Kamal Nasser, and Kamal Adwan (i.e., members of Black September): 'The deaths as Martyrs of leadership members Muhammad Yusuf Al-Najjar, Kamal Nasser, and Kamal Adwan was a great loss for Palestine and the PLO.'
He added: 'Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar was among Fatah's leaders and founders, and was the symbol of Palestine abroad, as he served as the head of the PLO political department.' […]
For the campaign and events of solidarity with the prisoners Zaki sent greetings of appreciation to leader prisoner Marwan Barghouti and all of the heroic prisoners and praised their role in the national struggle and their ability to give despite the darkness of the prisons and their suffering."

Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar was Arafat's deputy and Commander of Operations for the terrorist organization Black September.

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.

Both were sentenced to life but were released in the Shalit prisoner exchange deal in 2011.
