PA TV glorifies Abu Jihad for planning "operations" that killed dozens of Israelis

PA TV News reports on terrorist Abu Jihad:
PA TV reporter: "The stone that represented a new phenomenon regarding the type of struggle, first burst out in the occupied land in 1987. This is all linked to Khalil Al-Wazir's (Abu Jihad's) name, from the city of Ramle, Prince of Martyrs (Shahids), the [first] Intifada's engineer - Arafat's companion from the very beginning, through Eilabun (i.e., the bombing of the Israeli National Water Carrier) and [the battle of] Karameh and the siege of Beirut and before that in Jordan... Abu Jihad says and also emphasizes, that no voice is louder than it [the Intifada's voice] and that the occupation's fate will be determined only on the land of Palestine. He also asks: 'Why don't we negotiate while fighting?' Before asking this, the Eilabun tunnel operation took place in 1965 (i.e., bombing of Israel's National Water Carrier), the shelling of the northern settlements (i.e., northern Israel) in 1981, in between the Savoy Hotel operation in Tel Aviv in 1975 (i.e., eight terrorists took over the Savoy Hotel and when Israeli forces attacked they killed 11), the blowing up of a truck bomb that same year (i.e., attack in Jerusalem in 1975 with a truck carrying a refrigerator filled with explosives, 15 killed), and the birth of Dalal's Republic in 1978 on the Haifa-Tel Aviv road (i.e., most lethal terror attack in Israel's history, when Dalal Mughrabi and other terrorists sailed from Lebanon to an Israeli shore, hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children) - these are the prominent operations planned and supervised by Abu Jihad, the most noble of men."
