Ziad Abu Ein – Palestinian PLO terrorist who murdered 2 Israelis – 14-year-old David Lankri and 16-year-old Boaz Lahav – and wounded 36 others, mostly teenagers, with a bomb he planted in Tiberias on May 14, 1979. Abu Ein escaped to America before being extradited to Israel where he was sentenced to life but later released in the Jibril Exchange in May 1985, when Israel agreed to release 1,150 Palestinian prisoners, including terrorist murderers, in exchange for three Israeli soldiers who had been taken hostage by the terror organization the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command (PFLP - GC). Abu Ein later served as PA Deputy Minister of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs, Fatah Revolutionary Council member, and head of the PA Committee to Resist Settlements and the Wall. Abu Ein died on Dec. 10, 2014 at ‎a demonstration in the West Bank that ‎turned violent. Immediately following his ‎death, PA and Fatah leaders claimed that ‎Abu Ein was murdered. Footage from the ‎event shows Abu Ein in an altercation with ‎an Israeli soldier who grabbed Abu Ein by ‎the neck, and later shows Abu Ein on the ground clutching his chest in pain. The ‎autopsy, which was overseen by Israeli and ‎Palestinian pathologists, revealed that the ‎cause of death was a heart attack, but ‎disagreement remains over the extent to which the altercation with Israeli forces may have caused ‎the heart attack. Palestinians have ‎continued to describe Abu Ein's death as a ‎‎"murder" and "assassination" by Israel.‎
