Monument dedicated to terrorist murderer wipes Israel off the map

Headline: “The work continues on Martyr Abu Ali Iyad Square”




The article includes a picture of a monument in Qalqilya dedicated to terrorist Abu Ali Iyad featuring the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel together with the PA areas as “Palestine.” On the map is written “We will die standing upright and we will not bow.” At the base of the monument is written “Martyr Abu Ali Iyad.”




Abu Ali Iyad was appointed head of Fatah military operations in 1966 and was responsible for several terror attacks. The attacks included a bombing in the town of Beit Yosef in northern Israel on April 25, 1966 (injuring 3 people), and placing bombs in the town of Margaliot in northern Israel on July 19, 1966. He was killed in 1971 in Jordan by the Jordanian army when it forced Fatah members out of the country.
