Official PA Daily celebrates release of terrorist who bombed Tel Aviv bus

Headline: “The embrace of the [Jordanian and Palestinian] flags at the moment when Abu Jaber gained his freedom”



“Jordanian prisoner Abdallah Abu Jaber (i.e., terrorist, wounded 14) – who was in the Israeli occupation’s prison for 20-and-a-half years for blowing up a bus in Tel Aviv in 2000, in which 13 (sic., 14) people were wounded – reached Jordan yesterday [June 8, 2021] after he completed serving his sentence…

The young man, who placed a black-and-white Palestinian keffiyeh (Arab headdress) on his left shoulder and a red-and-white Jordanian keffiyeh on his right shoulder, said: ‘This was not a trip for tourism, but rather a journey for resistance.’ He added: ‘I fulfilled my obligation as a Palestinian. This is the land of Palestine, and it must be liberated as soon as possible.’

Palestinian National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) member for the refugee camps in Jordan Younes Abu Sil told AFP: ‘We are very happy about the release of this heroic prisoner, a member of the Fatah Movement and the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (i.e., Fatah’s military wing), after more than 20 years that he served in the occupation’s prison for carrying out an operation (i.e., terror attack) in revenge for the deaths of thousands of Palestinians.’”
