Headline: “Establishing a square named after Martyr Dalal Mughrabi in Jenin”


“The construction and decoration of a square named after Martyr Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led the murder of 37 people, 12 of them children) was completed today [Oct. 2, 2020] in the city [of Jenin], which was carried out by the [former PLO Chairman and PA President] Martyr Yasser Arafat branch of the Fatah Movement in partnership with the municipality and the Al-Takaful insurance company.

[Jenin] Mayor Fayez Al-Sa’adi emphasized that this monument comes to immortalize the memory of the heroic Martyr who carried out a daring self-sacrificing operation (i.e., terror attack) and watered the pure land of Palestine with her blood so that its memory would remain alive in the memory of the generations. He also emphasized the adherence to the path of the Martyrs who we will not forget, and our people will not abandon their blood.”



Dalal Mughrabi – female Palestinian terrorist who led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, murdering 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.

Yasser Arafat – Founder of Fatah and former chairman of the PLO and PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.
