Fatah: Our right and duty to commemorate Mughrabi, Shahids

Headline: "Al-Aloul emphasizes that Fatah takes pains to commemorate the memory of its Shahids (Martyrs)"
"Mahmoud Al-Aloul, member of the Fatah Central Committee and General Commissioner for Mobilization and Organization, emphasized that it is important to continue commemorating the memory of the Shahids (Martyrs) and the Palestinian acts of heroism, and most importantly the anniversary of Dalal Mughrabi’s Martyrdom, heroine of the Coastal Road operation [terror attack], which falls on March 11th each year.
In a meeting held yesterday in Ramallah at the Mobilization and Organization Headquarters to commemorate the memory of the Coastal Road operation…, attended by those responsible for Fatah public relations, and senior personnel from government, military and civil institutions, Al-Aloul said that Fatah has acted and continues to act to immortalize its Shahids (Martyrs) and heroes, out of loyalty towards them and towards their blood, [and] the Palestinian history and heritage which some have, at a certain stage, attempted to shake off.
He added: 'It is our right and our duty to take pride in all of the Shahids (Martyrs), and it is our duty to convey this message in the most direct manner to the generations to come, in order to anchor our people's struggles and the history of its struggle in the memory of the generations.'
Al-Aloul said: 'Commemorating the memory of the Shahids (Martyrs) of Palestine conforms with the Fatah platform, and we will always act to hold these ceremonies… each at its appointed time.'"

Note: Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel's history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
