Planned the murder of 11 Israeli athletes in the Munich Olympics in 1972 and the murder of two American diplomats.).' He added, 'We shall not forget him; we had hoped that he would be at our side on our difficult path...' Al-Hindi was born in Gaza in 1940. He worked in Fatah from the time of its establishment, within its security service, and he was directly connected to the Munich operation of 1972. He served as the first head of the PA security services."
