Black September terrorist was “specialized in commanding quality operations” and “became a giant,” says Fatah official

Awdah TV, Fatah-run  |

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: “Brother [Ali Hassan Salameh] ‘Abu Hassan’ - may Allah have mercy on him - specialized in commanding quality operations (i.e., terror attacks), and he had cells that he deployed in the European states. He is the one who invented letter bombs... From this point they [Israel] started to worry about him, and he started to hunt senior officials from the Israeli Mossad (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) … He connected himself to the Fatah Movement and became a giant despite his young age.”

Abbas Zaki also holds the position as Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations

Ali Hassan Salameh - Palestinian terrorist and commander of operations in Europe of the Black September terror organization - a secret branch of Fatah - in the 1970s.

Salameh was killed by a car bomb in Beirut on Jan. 22, 1979. Israel is thought to be responsible for his death, but has not officially taken responsibility for it.
