Fatah marathon honors arch-terrorist Abu Jihad who was behind murder of 125 Israelis

     ‎"Fatah's Salfit branch and the Shabiba [Fatah youth movement] in the Qarawat Bani HaSan [village] ‎marked Palestinian Prisoners' Day and the anniversary of [Khalil Al-Wazir] Abu Jihad's Martyrdom-‎death, with the Prisoners of Freedom marathon and rally. The event, held under the auspices of ‎District Affairs director, engineer Abd Al-Hamid Al-Dik, was attended by over 100 competitors at the ‎district level, as well as Fatah Revolutionary Council member [and wife of Marwan Barghouti] Fadwa ‎Barghouti, Secretary of Fatah's Salfit [branch] Abd Al-Sattar Awwad... Al-Dik expressed his pride in ‎the Palestinian prisoners, and conveyed the greetings of the President Mahmoud Abbas. Likewise, ‎he stressed that the President is expanding the prisoners' issue from the national to the Arab and ‎international arenas, and referred to the President's promise that there will be no peace or ‎negotiations without the release of the prisoners. Awwad said: 'We must continue on the path of ‎struggle out of commitment to the heroic prisoners and loyalty to the blood of the Martyrs, who ‎turned the suffering of our people and nation into the fuel of the revolution that ignited within our ‎souls the [willingness to] give and sacrifice. Abu Jihad will continue to serve as a school for the ‎revolution from which the Palestinian youth will learn. Walk on this path, armed with faith in the ‎revolution, the struggle, and the justness of the Palestinian cause." ‎
