(May 27, 2018 / PMW) The Palestinian Authority and Abbas’s Fatah have come up with yet a new way to honor terrorist prisoners: A huge billboard with numerous photos of so-called “fighting prisoners” was inaugurated in the town of Husan, west of Bethlehem.
P.A. TV News said the billboard immortalizes 17 prisoners who are serving long sentences. Among the prisoners on the billboard is terrorist Izz Al-Din Hamamrah, who is serving 10 life sentences for recruiting a suicide bomber who murdered eight people.
The billboard was inaugurated at an event in which the head of the PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake participated, as well as the prisoners’ parents, local school students and a scouts group. Karake stated that the billboard is a sign of the “support for the prisoners”:
Karake: “These [activities] are a kind of support, stand, and aid for the fighting prisoners who fought and sacrificed for Palestine. We say that the prisoners’ cause is a central and main cause, and it is the criterion for any just peace in the region.”
