Nimer Mahmoud Ahmed Aljamal, the terrorist who murdered three Israelis in an attack at the entrance to the Jewish town of Har Adar Tuesday morning, was praised as a 'Martyr' by Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement on its official Facebook page.

Fatah's Facebook page featured a picture of Aljamal with a caption praising him, glorifying him, and expressing its condolences to his family.

The caption attached to the terrorist's picture reads: "In the name of the Fatah movement, we share the sorrow of the family of the shaheed (martyr) Nimer Mahmoud Ahmed Aljamal who was killed in the operation today."

Fatah also wrote: He who carried out the operation in Jerusalem is shaheed Nimr Mahmoud Ahmed Aljamal."

Palestinian Media Watch reported that Fatah's Nablus (Shechem) branch wrote in response to the deadly attack: "What is the homeland? It is the longing to die in order to return the right and the land that were stolen. A morning scented with the fragrance of the shaheeds."

The PA Ministry of Health claimed that Aljamal died because he was shot by 'occupation forces' neglecting to mention that he had killed three Israelies.

"The Ministry of Health officially announces the martyrdom of a citizen (not yet identified), after the Israeli occupation forces shot him, northwest of Jerusalem," the PA Health Ministry wrote on its Facebook page.

Maor Zemach, chairman of the Lach Yerushalayim movement, who translated the post praising the terrorist, said: "The Fatah movement, headed by Abu Mazen, continues to incite and glorify terrorists. This is a reality that the State of Israel must fight against ... It is insane to think that only this week the Palestinian Authority, which supports terrorist murderers, sought to join Interpol."
