Official PA TV program Giants of Endurance, visit to the family of terrorist prisoner Hamza Taqtouq, who murdered 1 together with accomplices

Father of prisoner Hamza Taqtouq: “Allah be praised and with Allah’s mercy, now inside the prison Hamza [Taqtouq] (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1 together with accomplices) is becoming educated and is learning. He is in his third year of university and is about to start the fourth year. This is thanks to the guys who are imprisoned inside, all of them without exception. I should also note Yasser Abu Bakr (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 3), who has the strength and pride to teach Hamza, and I say 1,000 blessings to Yasser Abu Bakr.”

Hamza Taqtouq, Bassam Ktei, and Ayham Kamamji – Palestinian terrorists and members of the PA Security Forces and the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military wing) who kidnapped Eliyahu Asheri, 18, on June 25, 2006, and subsequently murdered him. The three hid in the PA headquarters in Ramallah and were later moved to the PA police headquarters, before Israeli security forces besieged the building and arrested them on July 4, 2006. The terrorists were also involved in a thwarted suicide bombing in March 2006. Ktei was sentenced to life and an additional 10 years and Kamamji was sentenced to 2 life sentences; PMW was unable to determine Taqtouq’s sentence.

Yasser Abu Bakr – Palestinian terrorist and member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military wing) who was responsible for a terrorist attack in Netanya on March 9, 2002, in which two terrorists opened fire and threw grenades at the Jeremy Hotel, murdering Avia Malka, a nine-month-old baby, and Israel Yihye, 27. Abu Bakr was also responsible for the murder of Israeli border policeman Constantine Danilov, 23, who was shot while trying to stop two terrorists from infiltrating Israeli territory in the area of Baqa Al-Gharbiya in northern Israel, as they were on their way to committing a suicide bombing on March 30, 2002. Abu Bakr is serving 3 life sentences and an additional 40 years.
