PA daily reports on Fatah prisoners’ celebration of the anniversary of terrorist Abu Jihad’s death

Headline: “Fatah prisoners at Ofer [prison] mark the anniversary of the Martyrdom death of Abu Jihad”
"Fatah prisoners at the central Ofer prison yesterday marked the anniversary of the Martyrdom death of Khalil Al-Wazir 'Abu Jihad,' the kidnapping of the Fatah [Parliamentary] representative Marwan Barghouti, and Prisoners' Day, with a series of lectures and organizational meetings. The Fatah cultural committee at the Ofer occupation prison oversaw the organization of these activities in praise of the commanding role of Martyr (Shahid) Abu Jihad in the national struggle and in the leadership of the revolution, and for his role in the outbreak of the stone-throwing Intifada (i.e., the first Palestinian wave of violence against Israel) in 1987."

Note: Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks killing 125 Israelis. This included the most lethal in Israeli history, the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
