We are broadcasting the concluding activities of the winter camps that the [PLO] Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs established, and in which approximately 200 male and female guides aged 13-16 participated. They were divided into three camps. The last camp took place today [Jan. 12, 2019], the winter camp, in which these concluding activities are taking place at this camp."

Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf) - PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat’s deputy, one of the founders of Fatah, and head of the terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah. Attacks he planned include the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972) and the murder of two American diplomats in Sudan (March 1, 1973). It is commonly assumed that his assassin, a former Fatah bodyguard, was sent by the Abu Nidal Organization, a rival Palestinian faction.
