Official Palestinian Authority TV broadcast a tribute this past week to the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), which was responsible for the 1974 Maalot massacre in northern Israel.

According to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), the tribute included a poster honoring three Arab terrorists of the DFLP who infiltrated the town of Maalot in northern Israel in May 1974, murdering 22 children, four adults, and wounding dozens more.

The PA TV tribute also honored terrorists who killed four civilians in the Israeli city of Beit Shean, describing them as "the heroes of Beit Shean, the pride of the Palestinian revolution.”  

Last year Palestinian Media Watch reported that PA TV repeatedly broadcast some of these same posters honoring terrorists from the DFLP, more  than 10 times in one week.

The tributes included glorification of the terrorist "Martyrs," as well as their many terror attacks, in which dozens of Israeli civilians were murdered, according to PMW.
