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 linked bulletin above for more information.
