Fatah Party Lauds Freed Murderer as a 'National Symbol'

Fatah, the party led by Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas', has praised one of the murderers freed recently as a "goodwill gesture" by Israel as a national hero, and pledged to "continue to walk in his path." The statements, translated by Palestinian Media Watch, were made on an official Fatah Facebook page, and came a week before murderer Issa Abd Rabbo's release last Tuesday, marking the 30th anniversary of his murderous act and subsequent arrest.
