Official PA daily calls two terrorists “Martyrs”

Headline: "Tomorrow a meeting will be held in order to discuss the appeals that have been submitted against the Martyrs' bodies being held"
    "Attorney of the [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners' Affairs Muhammad Mahmoud said that the [Israeli] Supreme Court set a meeting for Wednesday [March 22, 2017] in order to discuss the appeals submitted against [Israel] holding the [bodies of the] Palestinian Martyrs (Shahids). Among the Martyrs are Martyr Abd Al-Hamid Abu Sorour (i.e., terrorist, bombed a bus in Jerusalem) who ascended [to Heaven] in April [2016], and Martyr Musbah Abu Sbeih (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) who ascended to [Heaven] in October [2016].”

Abd Al-Hamid Abu Sorour – 19-year-old Hamas terrorist who on April 18, 2016, carried out a suicide bombing attack on bus no. 12 in the Talpiot neighborhood in southeast Jerusalem. 21 people were injured in the attack. Abu Sorour died of his injuries a few days later in an Israeli hospital.

Musbah Abu Sbeih – 39-year-old Palestinian terrorist who murdered 2 Israelis and wounded 5 others in 3 drive-by shooting attacks in Jerusalem on Oct. 9, 2016. Abu Sbeih, who held Israeli residency status, began his shooting spree at the Ammunition Hill light rail stop and continued to the Shimon Hatzadik neighborhood. He was killed in an exchange of fire with Israeli border police officers during the attack. On the morning of the attack, Abu Sbeih was due to turn himself in to begin a 4 month jail sentence, after being convicted in January 2015 on numerous counts of inciting to terror and supporting a terror organization. On his Facebook page, Abu Sbeih praised terror groups including Hamas as well as terrorists who carried out attacks and actively called for attacks against Israelis. In July 2016, Abu Sbeih was given a distancing order from the Temple Mount that was to be in effect until the end of October 2016.
