(JNS) Ata Abu Rmeileh, the Fatah Party’s Secretary in Jenin, called the recent terrorist attacks in Israel part of the “triumph over the occupation” and stressed Fatah’s admiration for the murderers.

According to a report by Palestinian Media Watch, the two Arab murderers who killed eight people in two separate terror attacks in the Orthodox city of Bnei Brak and on Dizengoff Street in central Tel Aviv in March and April have been named “heroic martyrs” by Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah Party.

Rmeileh vowed to “adhere to the covenant and the oath to these martyrs.”

He stated: “The Jenin district is triumphing, triumphing over the occupation. … As a sign of support for the blessed Al-Aqsa mosque, and the pure martyrs and heroic martyrs Ra’ad [Hazem] and Diya [Hamarsheh], and all the martyrs, we light the torch of freedom and the torch of the prisoners to emphasize that we adhere to the covenant and the oath to these martyrs and to the martyr leader […].”

According to the report, he made the statements on official PA TV on April 19.
