Ramallah municipality to build mausoleum to honor terrorist murderers

The Ramallah municipality voted to build a mausoleum in honor of PLO terrorists responsible for the deaths of 11 Israelis in the 1975 Savoy Hotel attack:
"The Ramallah Municipal Council held its weekly meeting, passed a number of resolutions, and authorized some procedures...
The council approved construction of a mausoleum for Martyrs of the Savoy operation in the new cemetery in Ramallah. Ramallah municipal coffers will cover expenses.
The mausoleum will hold the bones of Martyrs from the numbered [Israeli military] cemeteries that were transferred [to the PA] months ago. It should be noted that the operation was carried out in 1975, in Tel Aviv, against a number of officers of the occupation army, as revenge for the assassination of [Fatah] commanders Kamal Adwan, Kamal Nasser, and Abu Yusuf Al-Najjar."

Note: In March 1975, eight terrorists traveled by boat from Lebanon to a Tel Aviv beach. They took over the Savoy Hotel and took guests as hostages. The next morning, Israeli forces attacked and killed seven of the terrorists. Eight hostages and three soldiers were killed by the terrorists during the attack.
