PA daily calls terror attack “Martyrdom-seeking operation” and terrorists “Martyrs,” describes visits of Jews to the Temple Mount as "invasions" of the Al-Aqsa Mosque

Headline: “Fatah monitors the Israeli violations in Jerusalem during the month of June”
     “The Jerusalem branch of the Fatah Movement yesterday [July 1, 2017] published its monthly report, which documents all of the violations and attacks by the occupation government and its executive branches against occupied Jerusalem and its [Arab] residents during the month of June 2017… The report stated that at a time when strict steps were being taken and Jerusalem had become a closed military base following the carrying out of a Martyrdom-seeking (Istish’had) operation (refers to June 16, 2017 terror attack in which Israeli border police officer Hadas Malka was murdered –Ed.), 1,660 Israelis invaded the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque… The occupation authorities are still holding the bodies of Jerusalem resident Martyrs (Shahids) Musbah Abu Sbeih (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) (since Oct. 9, 2016) [parentheses in source] and Martyr Fadi Al-Qanbar (i.e., terrorist, murdered 4) (since Jan. 8, 2017) [parentheses in source].
On the same matter, the Israeli occupation government demanded that the wife of Martyr Fadi Al-Qanbar and his four children compensate the families of the soldiers who were killed and wounded in the [truck] ramming operation that Martyr Al-Qanbar carried out in the settlement (i.e., Jerusalem neighborhood) of Armon Hanatziv.”

Bara Saleh, Adel Ankoush, Osama Ata – three Palestinian terrorists who carried out a terror attack in Jerusalem on June 16, 2017. Two of the terrorists, one armed with an automatic weapon and the other with a knife, attacked Israeli police officers north of the Old City of Jerusalem. Seconds later a third terrorist stabbed and murdered Israeli border policewoman Hadas Malka, 23, at the Old City’s Damascus Gate as she and other officers were responding to the first attack. All three terrorists were shot and killed by the Israeli officers. Aside from Malka, four Israelis were wounded in the attack. ISIS initially claimed responsibility for the attack but Hamas rejected the claim, saying the terrorists were members of Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion.” It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.

Musbah Abu Sbeih – 39-year-old Palestinian terrorist who murdered 2 Israelis and wounded 5 others in 3 drive-by shooting attacks in Jerusalem on Oct. 9, 2016. Abu Sbeih, who held Israeli residency status, began his shooting spree at the Ammunition Hill light rail stop and continued to the Shimon Hatzadik neighborhood. He was killed in an exchange of fire with Israeli border police officers during the attack. On the morning of the attack, Abu Sbeih was due to turn himself in to begin a 4 month jail sentence, after being convicted in January 2015 on numerous counts of inciting to terror and supporting a terror organization. On his Facebook page, Abu Sbeih praised terror groups including Hamas as well as terrorists who carried out attacks and actively called for attacks against Israelis. In July 2016, Abu Sbeih was given a distancing order from the Temple Mount that was to be in effect until the end of October 2016.

Fadi Al-Qanbar – 28-year-old Palestinian terrorist who on Jan. 8, 2017, murdered 4 Israeli soldiers – officer Yael Yekutiel, 20, and cadets Shir Hajaj, 22, Shira Tzur, 20, and Erez Orbach, 20 – and wounded over 15 other soldiers in a truck ramming attack at the Armon Hanatziv Promenade, in southeast Jerusalem. After ramming into the soldiers at high speed, Al-Qanbar ran over the prone soldiers again before being shot and killed by soldiers and an armed civilian. Al-Qanbar supported ISIS online.
