Dalal Mughrabi High School posts picture and text glorifying terrorist Mughrabi’s terror attack

Text and image were uploaded to Facebook page of the Dalal Mughrabi High School for Girls in Gaza on Dec. 8, 2013, and accessed July 2, 2015. 

Text on Facebook page of the school: “Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) planned the operation, which was based on arriving [from Lebanon] by sea, on the Palestinian coast… (sic, it was the Israeli coast- Ed.) Dalal [Mughrabi] and her group succeeded in reaching the road to Tel Aviv and took over an Israeli bus with all its passengers, who were soldiers (sic, passengers were all civilians –Ed.) The bus then drove towards Tel Aviv, and on the way Dalal [Mughrabi] and her group fired at Israeli cars driving next to the bus and caused hundreds of casualties.
Large [Israeli] tank units (sic, there were no tanks involved –Ed.)… chased after the bus until it stopped next to the settlement of Herzliya (sic, Herzliya is an Israeli city)… and Dalal [Mughrabi] blew up the bus with its soldier-passengers (sic, all were civilians – Ed.) and all of them were killed.”

Notes: Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks killing 125 Israelis. This included 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, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.
