Terrorist Mughrabi, whose attack was "orchestrated by Abu Jihad," is "a Palestinian and Arab symbol"

PA TV program On this Day:
"On this day [March 11,] 1978, in one of the most courageous Palestinian self-sacrifice operations, a squad infiltrated the coast between the [Israeli] cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa and took control of an Israeli bus, forcing it to turn towards Tel Aviv... The Israeli army attacked the bus and a struggle ensued for hours, resulting in the death of 37 Israelis, the wounding of 82 others, the Martyrdom-death of 9 self-sacrificers and the arrest of the 10th. The name of the operation, orchestrated by Abu Jihad, was "The Deir Yassin Operation." As a result, Dalal Mughrabi (who led the operation) became both a Palestinian and Arab symbol. Palestinian writers gave her the nickname "President of the Palestinian Republic."
