“Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Revolutionary Council Fahmi Al-Za’arir called commander-Martyr (Shahid) Khalil Al-Wazir an inspiration to all sectors of the Palestinian people in his constant national opposition and fighting activity and in his leadership of Fatah’s popular resistance on the Palestinian lands and in the diaspora.
In a press release on the 26th anniversary of Abu Jihad’s Martyrdom at the hands of an Israeli terrorist commando in Tunisia in 1988, Al-Za’arir said that Martyr Abu Jihad had planted noble values and methods of revolution among our people that fanned the glowing embers [of its resistance] against the occupation...
In addition, he said that Abu Jihad would be forever in the hearts of all Fatah members and all patriots, and that his deeds would continue to be a beacon of inspiration for us all.”

Khalil Al-Wazir (Abu Jihad) 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. These attacks, which killed a total of 125 Israelis, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
