All terrorists are “innocent civilians” and victims of an Israeli plot according to the PA
- PA’s fake news present female stabber as innocent civilian “attacked by the occupation forces”
Earlier this month, a 65-year-old Palestinian woman named Sa’diyya Farajallah stabbed an Israeli civilian near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. The 38-year-old Israeli man fought her in self-defense until she was arrested by Israeli police.
But in the PA’s fake news the story was different. According to official PA TV, Farajallah was “attacked,” “beaten,” and “wounded” for no reason by “the occupation forces.” PA TV never mentioned the fact that Farajallah had stabbed an Israeli man:
Official PA TV newsreader: “The occupation forces arrested a female civilian from Hebron after she was severely beaten (sic.) near the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., the Cave of the Patriarchs). Our reporter said that civilian Sa’diyya Farajallah (i.e., terrorist, wounded 1), 65, was wounded in various parts of her body as a result of being attacked by the occupation forces stationed at the military checkpoint in front of the Ibrahimi Mosque, and he noted that the occupation forces prevented the civilians and first aid teams from reaching the wounded woman who fainted and lost consciousness.”

The fake news and the distortion of a Palestinian terror attack into an “unprovoked Israeli assault” against “an innocent Palestinian victim” is not new. Even when there is video footage of an attack, and the terrorist is clearly seen attacking his/her victims, the PA misrepresents the Israeli response as an assault or “execution.” During the terror wave in 2015-2016, also coined the Knife Intifada, when numerous stabbing attacks took place, Palestinian Media Watch exposed that the PA routinely claimed Israel fabricated the attacks and planted the knives at the scene. The PA has since continued to describe Palestinian stabbers as “unarmed” victims of Israeli “executions.”
Sa’diyya Farajallah – 65-year-old female Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and wounded an Israeli civilian near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Dec. 18, 2021. The civilian fought off Farajallah to defend himself until she was arrested by Israeli border police officers.
The following are additional recent reports on terror attacks twisted by the PA to present Palestinian terrorists as innocent victims:
“Last night [Dec. 20, 2021], the Israeli occupation authorities handed over the body of doctor, Martyr, and Jerusalem resident Hazem Al-Joulani (i.e., terrorist, attempted to stab Israeli security officers) to his family…

He said that the denounced murder is an implementation of the open-fire policy that the Israeli military establishment commanders announced a number of days ago (refers to new open-fire orders allowing soldiers to shoot at terrorists who have thrown rocks or firebombs even if they are no longer in the act of attacking -Ed.).”
