     ‎"The [PLO's] Popular Committee for Refugee Affairs at the Khan Yunis Refugee Camp ‎organized, in cooperation with Fatah's West Khan Yunis branch... a sports festival in ‎support of President Mahmoud Abbas and as a show of loyalty to the blood of the ‎Martyrs (Shahids), as the highlight of the Martyr Raed Al-Karmi and Martyr Dalal ‎Mughrabi Tournament...
The director of the Refugee Camps [in the PLO's Department for Refugee Affairs], the ‎Chairman of the Popular Committee for Refugee Affairs at the Khan Yunis refugee ‎camp, Mazen Abu Zaid, Fatah [West Khan Yunis Branch] Secretary Walid Shaqoura, ‎Brigadier-General Youssef Al-Shibl, several officers of the Presidential Guard, ‎numerous senior officials and activists in the field of national action, numerous ‎activists and members of Fatah's Shabiba [youth movement] and members of Fatah's ‎‎[West Khan Yunis] branch were present at the festival...
‎Mazen Abu Zaid said that this festival was designed to renew our commitment and ‎loyalty to the blood of the Martyrs, and to show support for President Mahmoud Abbas, ‎especially in view of the plots being woven against him even as he is directing an ‎important diplomatic and political struggle in the life of the Palestinian people.
In addition, he expressed his appreciation of the positive efforts that contributed to the ‎success of the sports tournament, and emphasized the need to increase all efforts ‎towards the supreme national interests and to protect the rights of our nation. He added ‎that the blood of Martyr Raed Al-Karmi, a resident of the Gaza Strip, and the blood ‎of Martyr Dalal Mughrabi, a resident of the Sabra refugee camp in Lebanon, had ‎been absorbed into the soil of the homeland, and embraced the blood of the ‎Gazan Martyrs, in order to draw the map of the homeland for us and to serve as a ‎message: Palestine is one, indivisible unit."‎

Notes: Raed Al-Karmi - a senior Tanzim (Fatah terror faction) operative responsible for the ‎murder of 9 Israelis in several attacks: Etgar Zeituni and Motti Dayan on January 23, ‎‎2001; Zvi Shelef on May 31, 2001; Danny Yehuda on June 18, 2001; Elie Na'aman on ‎July 4, 2001; Dov Roseman on August 26, 2001; Hananya Ben Avraham on October 5, ‎‎2001; soldier Yaniv Levy on August 28, 2001 and Israeli army officer Erez Merhavi on ‎September 6, 2001. Al-Karmi was killed by the Israeli army on January 14, 2002.

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. ‎Palestinians often refer to the attack as the "Kamal Adwan operation."‎
