Posted text: “Tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 22, [2021,] is the 42nd anniversary of the death as a Martyr of the Red Prince, Ali Hassan Salameh (i.e., former commander of operations of the Black September terror organization)… who kept the Israeli occupation up at night with a series of operations (i.e., terror attacks), until the Israeli Mossad (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) assassinated him in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, on Jan. 22, 1979. ‘Sad Monday’ in the history of the Palestinian revolution – this is how the day of his death as a Martyr was called. This is a day full of grief and lethal bouts of pain in the lives of everyone who loved Martyr commander Abu Hassan Salameh.
