The Palestinian Authority has named a public square after the mastermind of the Ma'alot massacre, Palestinian Media Watch reported.

The PA named the square in Jenin after arch-terrorist Khaled Nazzal, the Secretary of the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), and commander of its military branch.

Nazzal was responsible for planning the 1974 Ma'alot massacre, in which Arab terrorists entered a school in the northern town of Ma'alot and took dozens of children and teachers hostage. 22 children and 4 adults were murdered in the attack.

Nazzal was also responsible for the planning of many other deadly terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians, including the murder of 4 hostages in Beit Shean and a grenade attack in Jerusalem.

The "Martyr Khaled Nazzal Square" was inaugurated at a rally in which PA officials participated "under the auspices of the Jenin District and the [Jenin] municipality." Participants included the Deputy District Governor of the Jenin District, and the DFLP in Jenin.

Deputy Mayor of Jenin Mahmoud Abu Mweis spoke at the the inauguration and said that the event "emphasized that our leadership and our people will continue on the path of the Martyrs."
