PA daily commemorates terrorists who carried out attack that killed 37 as "heroes" and "the most prominent Yemenite Martyrs"

Headline: "Between Yemen and Palestine – Martyrs and memories"
      "At a time when there are no official statistics regarding the number of Yemenite Martyrs (Shahids) who have fallen for the Palestinian cause, a number of Palestinian sources note that the number of Yemenite Martyrs exceeds 1,000… It is possible that the most prominent Yemenite Martyrs are Muhammad Hussein Al-Shumari and Abd Al-Raouf Abd Al-Salam Ali, two of the heroes of the coastal operation (i.e., terror attack, 37 murdered) carried out by Fatah in March 1978."

Coastal Road Massacre - In March 1978, a group of Fatah terrorists from Lebanon led by Dalal Mughrabi hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway. Confronted by the Israeli army, the terrorists killed many of the passengers on the bus, in total 37 civilians,12 of them children, and wounded more than 70. The attack, orchestrated by arch-terrorist Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir), is known in Israel as the Coastal Road Massacre.
