PA daily praises the “bravery and sacrifices” of imprisoned murderer Issa Abd Rabbo

“The family of prisoner Issa Abd Rabbo from the Deheisheh refugee camp south of Bethlehem, who it has been decided will be released [by Israel] in the second phase of prisoners arrested before the Oslo Accords, is waiting impatiently to see him among them, after a separation lasting 29 years [due to his imprisonment] in Israeli occupation prisons.
Immediately after his family learned that Issa was among the prisoners to be released, it began preparing to welcome him in a way befitting his bravery and sacrifices, and they hung signs, large pictures of him and decorations that were prepared especially for the occasion.”
From WAFA, official PA news agency
