The official Facebook page of Abbas' Fatah Movement celebrated Fatah's 53rd anniversary by glorifying eight terrorist murderers from its ranks, four of them female suicide bombers. Fatah posted photos of the killers with the same text and logo on Dec. 30, 2017:

"The Palestinian National Liberation Movement - Fatah
Mobilization and Organization Commission - Communications Office
The 53rd anniversary of the outbreak of the Palestinian revolution"
The following are the photos of the terrorist murderers posted on Fatah's official Facebook page, with PMW explanatory notes:
Khalil Al-Wazir - Abu Jihad - former head of the PLO's military wing, was responsible for the
murder of at least 125 Israelis, according to the PA's news agency Wafa.
"Heroic Martyr (Shahid)
Fatah Movement Central Committee member,
Khalil Al-Wazir 'Abu Jihad'"

The number "53" represents the 53rd anniversary of the "Launch" of Fatah. In the upper right corner is the Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of "Palestine" that presents all of Israel together with the PA areas as "Palestine".

Palestinian Media Watch has exposed numerous statements and events by PA and Fatah officials honoring arch-terrorist Abu Jihad. In 2013, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas decorated Abu Jihad with the PA's Star of Honor. 

Dalal Mughrabi - led murder of 37, including 12 children
