Jenin municipality reinstates monument to terrorist who killed 31
Headline: “The Jenin Municipality reinstated the Martyr Khaled Nazzal monument”
“The Jenin Municipality on Saturday morning [June 24, 2017] reinstated the Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal monument (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 31) to Haifa Street in the center of the city, and this was after it was destroyed two days ago. Martyr [Nazzal’s] wife, Rima Nazzal, said that the Jenin Municipality changed its mind on the removal of the Martyr Khaled monument and returned it to its place. This was after a large meeting with the Nazzal family at the town of Qabatiya, in the presence of a senior official of the Democratic Front [for the Liberation of Palestine] in the village. She [Rima Nazzal] emphasized that the public and social activity played a large part in the pressure on the Jenin Municipality to change its mind on removing the monument, ‘because the Martyrs’ dignity and the heritage of their struggle is a red line that must not be crossed by anyone.’”
