      “Yesterday [Aug. 26, 2018], Mayor of Beit Awwa Younes Freijat and Director of the Southern Hebron Education Directorate (i.e., branch of the PA Ministry of Education) Khaled Abu Sharar laid the cornerstone for the construction of The Second Dalal Mughrabi Republic School (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children) in Beit Awwa with official and popular attendance by a group of the municipality's school principals and teachers. The event was held in the presence of Fatah Branch Secretary in Southern Hebron Yasser Doudin, Commander of [PA] Intelligence in Dura Colonel Saed Al-Kamel, and the Teachers and Pensioners Club. Freijat explained that the Beit Awwa Municipality is in need of new schools and that this school will be funded from the state coffers, and added that the construction will begin immediately after the laying of the cornerstone. He noted that the residents of the municipality are giving full support to the school so that it will constitute a beacon of knowledge and serve their sons and daughters. Education [Directorate] Director Khaled Abu Sharar said that ‘The construction of the school comes from the state coffers so that every Palestinian who has paid their taxes will be a partner in the construction of this u nique hall of knowledge.’ It should be noted that the Dalal Mughrabi School’s name was changed to The Belgian School – Tala’ei Al-Janoub in honor of the Belgium government that built it. The Education Directorate transferred the name [Dalal Mughrabi] to the Beit Awwa Girls’ Elementary School [note: the Facebook profile picture of this school with the new name was posted on August 23, 2018], and it is building a new school with a kindergarten named after Dalal.”

Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, murdering 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.

"The Belgian School – Tala’ei Al-Janoub" - School built with Belgian funding in Beit Awwa, Hebron district. Previously known as "The Dalal Mughrabi Coed School"\"Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Coed Elementary School"\"The Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Elementary School". PMW exposed that the school was named after terrorist Dalal Mughrabi in September 2017 and formally complained to the Belgian government, which immediately condemned the PA. In July 2018, PMW discovered the school was still named after Dalal Mughrabi and notified the Belgian government, which again condemned the PA. In August 2018 the PA changed the school's name to "The Belgian School - Tala'ei Al-Janoub" and gave the previous name to another school in the area, changing it from "The Beit Awwa Elementary School for Girls" to "The Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Elementary School." It also began construction of another school in the area, to be called "The Second Dalal Mughrabi Republic School and Kindergarten." See PMW's bulletin above for more information
