Official PA TV program Source of the Story

Official PA TV host: "Our heroes – Arab and Palestinian – we will not forget you [Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir] and will not forget your goal. We will remind the world about you and say: 'We are free people and we deserve to live in dignity.'"

The host on official PA TV made this statement after having read a letter written by the three murderers, Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir, before they were executed.

Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir “committed particularly brutal murders [of Jews] at Safed and Hebron,” according to the report by British Government to the League of Nations. They were convicted of attacking British soldiers and murdering Jews in the 1929 Hebron Massacre, in which 65 Jews were murdered. They were executed by the British in 1930.
