Fatah praises terrorist shooter of 9 year-old: "The sniper of Palestine was here"

After a nine-year-old girl was shot in the Israeli town of Psagot in the West Bank on Oct 5, 2013, the administrator of an official Fatah Facebook page praised the terrorist shooter. He related the attack to a sniper attack that killed an Israeli soldier in Hebron on Sept. 22, 2013. The Facebook page praised "the sniper of Palestine," who began his work in Hebron (the shooting of the soldier), passed through El-Bireh (the shooting of the girl), and - according to the Fatah Facebook page administrator - will continue in more places in the future:
"The sniper of Palestine was here. He saluted Hebron, and rested in El-Bireh. He left the signature of [real] men in different parts of the homeland. He saluted and left, and moved on to a different place, with a new signature, as he tells the stories of those who love the homeland."
