Fatah posts new picture of terrorist who ‎stabbed 2 Israelis to death on its Facebook ‎page

Posted text: "They asked Allah to have mercy ‎on his soul – a new picture of Martyr (Shahid) ‎Muhannad Halabi during his visit to the ‎Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs). It ‎should be noted that the Martyr died as a Martyr ‎during a stabbing operation (i.e., terror attack in ‎which Halabi killed 2 Israelis) that he carried ‎out in occupied Jerusalem."‎

Muhannad Halabi - 19-year-old Palestinian ‎terrorist who 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."‎
