Wadi’ Al-Houh, Ali Antar, Hamdi Qayyim, Mash’al Baghdadi, Hamdi Sharaf – The “confrontation” refers to Palestinian terrorists and members of the independent terror cell “the Lion’s Den” who shot at Israeli soldiers when they raided and destroyed a headquarters and weapons and explosives laboratory of the cell in Nablus on Oct. 25, 2022. During the raid, PA Security Forces shot at the Israeli soldiers, who returned fire in self-defense wounding several members of the PA Security Forces. The soldiers also came under fire from members of the terror cell and returned fire, killing 5 terrorists: Wadi’ Al-Houh, Ali Antar, Hamdi Qayyim, Mash’al Baghdadi, Hamdi Sharaf. Al-Houh was a senior member of “the Lion’s Den.”


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.
