Fatah’s Twitter posts pictures of soil from the Al-Aqsa Mosque to be buried with terrorist "so that the dead body... can hug the soil for which he died a Martyr"

Fatah, Twitter  |

Image and text tweeted from Fatah's Twitter account on Oct. 8, 2015. The images show sacks of soil and a dead body, presumably of Muhannad Halabi.

"Soil from the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] that was brought by the Jerusalem Fatah movement, so that the dead body of Martyr Muhannad Halabi (i.e., murderer of 2) can hug the soil for which he died a Martyr #the_rage_of_Jerusalem"

Muhannad Halabi (19) killed 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett's wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, in a post to his private Facebook page, the terrorist referred to recent terror attacks as part of a "third Intifada," and said that it was a response to Israel's actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not "succumb to humiliation." This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
