PA TV host expresses “solidarity” with “heroic prisoners” who threw grenades

 PA TV Host: "We'll start our diverse discussions by expressing solidarity with the prisoners from Jerusalem who, in October, have started their 25th year of imprisonment in the occupation's prisons. We will support them and of course [send] greetings to all the prisoners in the occupation's prisons, but today we devote our expression of solidarity to five prisoners: the heroic prisoners of the Mughrabi Gate (i.e., gate near the Western Wall) operation in 1986."

Note: The "heroic prisoners of the Mughrabi Gate operation" threw grenades at soldiers and their families after a swearing-in ceremony at the Western Wall. One Israeli was killed and 69 were injured in the attack. The talk show included interviews with the families of the five terrorists who are serving long sentences in Israeli prisons for the October 15, 1986, attack.
