Fatah expresses condolences for terrorist who murdered 2 in the Old City

Headline: “Fatah delegation expresses condolences over the death of the Martyr Muhannad Halabi and visits the wounded of the aggression (i.e., having killed 2 Israelis, the terrorist was shot and killed)”
       “A Fatah leadership delegation expressed condolences yesterday [Oct. 10, 2015] over the death of Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi in El-Bireh. Likewise, the delegation visited the wounded of the non-stop Israeli aggression against our people on the West Bank. The delegation included Central Committee members [Commissioner for Mobilization and Organization] Mahmoud Al-Aloul, [chairman of its parliament faction] Azzam Al-Ahmad, Jamal Muhaisen, and [Fatah Commissioner of International Relations and former PA Foreign Minister] Nabil Shaath, and Fatah spokesman Ahmad Assaf, Ramallah branch Secretary Muwaffaq Sahwil, Deputy Commissioner recruitment and [organization] for Shabiba Abd Al-Mun'im Wahdan, Shabiba Secretary-General Hassan Faraj, and members of the Ramallah and El-Bireh Fatah branch…
In the mourners’ tent, brother Azzam Al-Ahmad spoke in the name of the delegation. He expressed condolences in the name of the Fatah movement, and emphasized that the Palestinian people will continue to protect itself against this aggression, and that it is more determined to fight – whatever the sacrifices might be – until the occupation disappears and its independent state with its capital in Jerusalem will be established.”

Muhannad Halabi 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."
