PA: Planner of Munich Olympics massacre “connected to many quality ‎operations” ‎

Official PA TV reporter: “[Ali Hassan Salameh] joined the Fatah Movement ‎in Cairo... He was also given command of the special operations (i.e., terror ‎attacks) against the occupation worldwide, and his name was connected to ‎many quality operations… Black September changed the rules of the game, ‎especially after the Munich operation (i.e., murder of 11 Israeli athletes), ‎which Israel exploited to justify a series of assassinations against the ‎Palestinians, including commander Ali Hassan Salameh.”‎

Ali Hassan Salameh - Palestinian terrorist and commander of operations in Europe of the Black September terror organization - a secret branch of Fatah - in the 1970s. He planned many terror attacks, including the attack on the Israeli team at the Munich Olympics on Sept. 5, 1972, in which 11 Israeli athletes were murdered. Salameh was killed by a car bomb in Beirut on Jan. 22, 1979. Israel is thought to be responsible for his death, but has not officially taken responsibility for it.
