Official PA TV host: "Palestinian Martyrs’ Day… goes back to 1969 (sic., 1965), when the first Martyr of the armed Palestinian revolution ascended to Heaven – Martyr Commander Ahmad Musa Salameh, who died as a Martyr in 1965 after he carried out his heroic operation, the Eilabun tunnel (i.e., attempted to bomb Israel’s National Water Carrier), which became a national day.”
