Fatah praises “heroic commander” terrorist from PA Security Forces involved in murder of at least 9

The video, which was produced by Fatah-run Awdah TV, includes many images of terrorist Marwan Zalum and other terrorists holding weapons.

Text on screen: “He joined the ranks of the revolution at age 18
and led military teams that inflicted heavy losses on the Israeli occupation in the Interior (i.e., “Palestine”) and outside (i.e., abroad)
This is Marwan Zalum…
He joined Fatah and became one of its most prominent fighters…
Mere months before the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign), he returned to Palestine and was appointed to a senior position in the [PA] Security Forces
He established military teams of the Al-Aqsa [Martyrs’] Brigades (i.e., Fatah’s military wing)
and led the self-sacrificing operations (i.e., terror attacks) against the settlers in the intifada
Thus he became the most wanted in Hebron
On April 22, 2002, he was targeted by three missiles
that directly struck his car, and he ascended to Heaven as a Martyr”
