Ofir Gendelman, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's spokesperson for the Arab media, on Wednesday revealed that Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction lost no time lauding the terrorists who conducted an attack in Jerusalem just hours earlier.

Gendelman posted on Twitter two official Fatah announcements bearing the pictures of the two Arab terrorists who went on a stabbing rampage at the Yafo Gate of Jerusalem's Old City early Wednesday afternoon. One victim was murdered by the terrorists and another seriously wounded, while a third was accidentally shot dead by security forces while trying to fight off the attackers.

One of the terrorists died in the attack and the other was shot and seriously wounded.

But just hours later, Fatah ran their pictures on announcements bearing the Fatah logo and pictures of the Fatah founder and arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat.

"PA President Abbas' Fatah org keeps supporting terrorism, calls the 2 terrorists who stabbed 3 in Jerusalem 'heroes,'" exposed Gendelman, in his tweet revealing the announcements.

Gendelman's tweet was uploaded shortly before midnight while the attack took place just after 1 p.m. in the afternoon, meaning that Fatah took only a few short hours in rushing to lionize the murderers.
