Posted text: “On July 27, 1971, the Fatah Movement and the Palestinian revolution lost one of their prominent fighters: leader Walid Ahmad Nimr Nasr Al-Hassan ‘Abu Ali Iyad,’ who had the honor of participating together with a number of his brothers in founding the Palestinian armed struggle, which lit the torch of revolution, resistance, and resolve among our people…

In 1966 he was assigned many missions connected to preparing military operations (i.e., terror attacks) in the depth of the Palestinian lands from inside the West Bank…

Abu Ali oversaw an attack against the Beit Yosef settlement in 1966 (refers to attack in northern Israel, 3 wounded -Ed.). The Israeli leaders admitted that this was the strongest attack against the Israeli settlements at the time.

He also oversaw other operations against the settlements of Hutin (sic., there is no Jewish town by this name), Manara, and Kfar Giladi (i.e., Israeli towns).”




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.
