Fatah official calls terrorist who led killing of 37 a "hero"

Awdah TV, Fatah-run  |

Fatah Revolutionary Council member, Muwaffaq Matar: "No one would have believed that this baby, ‎this toddler in her mother’s arms, is the one that would become the hero and commander Dalal ‎Mughrabi. During the Kamal Adwan operation (i.e., bus hijacking and killing of 37) in the 1970’s, she ‎declared the Republic of Palestine, on the occupied seashore of Palestine, when she commanded an ‎operation with 12 self-sacrificing fighters. It was a heroic operation, which is studied in the military ‎academies until this day. Who would have imagined that the man in this photograph, the father of this ‎toddler, would become the father of the hero and commander, Martyr Dalal Mughrabi?‎"
