Image and text posted on the Facebook page of the Fatah Movement’s Bethlehem Branch

Text in post and on poster: "Jerusalem will win thanks to them"

This poster glorifies Palestinian terrorist Omar Al-Abd who murdered 3 Israelis as they were having dinner in their home (rightmost photo in the top row), terrorist Muhammad Tanouh who attempted to stab Israeli soldiers (photo before last in the top row), and four Palestinian rioters who were killed by Israel during clashes following the placement of metal detectors at the entrances to the Temple Mount. (from left to right in the top row: Muhammad Lafi, Muhammad Sharaf, Muhammad Abu Ghannam, Yusuf Kashour.)

The remaining pictures show the metal detectors placed at the entrances to the Temple Mount following a terror attack that took place there on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israelis were murdered – see note below. Israel decided to remove the metal detectors on July 24, 2017. The remaining pictures show riots and demonstrations that took place following the placement of the metal detectors.

Muhammad Lafi (18), Muhammad Hassan Abu Ghannam (in his 20s), and Muhammad Sharaf (17) - three Arab rioters who were killed by Israeli soldiers on July 21, 2017, while participating in separate confrontations with the Israeli army in Jerusalem and around it. The riots were held in protest of Israel placing metal detectors at the entrance to the Temple Mount following a terror attack there on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israelis were murdered.

Muhammad Tanouh – a Palestinian terrorist who tried to stab Israeli soldiers at the entrance to the village of Taqua, south of Bethlehem, on July 20, 2017, and was shot and killed by them.

Omar Al-Abd – 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and murdered 3 Israelis - Yosef, Haya, and Elad Salomon - and severely injured 1 - Tova Salomon - as they sat at their Sabbath dinner table in Halamish, north of Ramallah, on July 21, 2017. Al-Abd was shot and wounded by a neighbor and taken into Israeli custody, receiving necessary medical treatment in an Israeli hospital.
Before committing the attack, Al-Abd wrote in his "will" on Facebook that he was taking his knife to respond to what was happening at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and did not expect to return. A week earlier, a terror attack was carried out at the Temple Mount in which 2 Israelis were murdered. Following the attack Israel closed the Temple Mount for two days and reopened it with metal detectors at the entrance to the holy site. Palestinians interpreted these measures as an “aggression” and “attack” against the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Muhammad Ahmad Muhammad Jabarin, Muhammad Hamed Abd Al-Latif Jabarin, and Muhammad Ahmad Mufaddal Jabarin - Israeli Arab terrorists aged 29, 19, and 19, who shot from the Temple Mount at Israeli policemen, murdering 2 Israeli Druze border policemen - Haiel Stawi and Kamil Shnaan, on July 14, 2017. Two of the terrorists were shot and killed by other policemen during the attack. The third terrorist was shot and killed while trying to flee.
