Note: Abu Jihad, who the center is named after, was one of the founders of Fatah and ran its terror activities from the mid-1960's. Second to Arafat, he headed the military wing of PLO and served as deputy military commander of Fatah. Abu Jihad planned many of the major Fatah terror attacks, including the worst in Israel's history, in which 37 civilians were murdered in a bus hijacking led by Dalal Mughrabi in 1978.
