Sign at the event: "Under the auspices of President Mahmoud Abbas: The eternal anniversary of the Al-Karameh battle is commemorated by the Political and National Guidance Commission" Spokesman of PA Security Forces, Adnan Al-Damiri: "All the honorable [events] take place in March, starting with the Al-Karameh Day through Mother's Day, Dalal Mughrabi's day and ending with Abu Jihad Khalil Al-Wazir. All these, brave brothers in the Palestinian Security Forces, this is their day, which we celebrate today." Note: Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) - Founder of Fatah and Deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and planned many deadly terror attacks, including the most lethal in Israeli history, the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children. Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel's history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children. Al-Karameh - In 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the Al-Karameh village in Jordan, where Fatah terrorists were launching attacks on Israel. Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.
