No one killed more Israelis than Fatah, boasts editor in chief of Palestinian news agency

Editor in Chief of the independent Palestinian news agency Ma’an Nasser Al-Lahham: “I want to tell you something. On the level of casualties, no one has caused more casualties than Fatah. When Fatah would go down to the scene, you would count hundreds of killed Israelis. With Martyr Raed Al-Karmi alone 240 Israelis were killed (sic., terrorist Raed Al-Karmi was responsible for the murder of 9), according to the testimony of [Israeli Parliament Member] Avi Dichter (sic., PMW was unable to find any record of Dichter making such a statement) – the one who proposed assassinating [Baha] Abu Al-Ata (i.e., senior commander of the Islamic Jihad terror organization). With Martyr Raed Al-Karmi [alone] Fatah took down 240 heads. [Regarding] the number of killed Israelis, no one took down as many killed people as did Fatah.”

Raed Al-Karmi – Palestinian terrorist and senior Tanzim (Fatah terror faction) member responsible for the murder of 9 Israelis in several attacks: Etgar Zeituni and Motti Dayan on Jan. 23, 2001; Zvi Shelef on May 31, 2001; Danny Yehuda on June 18, 2001; Elie Na’aman on July 4, 2001; Dov Roseman on Aug. 26, 2001; soldier Yaniv Levy on Aug. 28, 2001; Israeli army officer Erez Merhavi on Sept. 6, 2001; and Hananya Ben Avraham on Oct. 5, 2001. Al-Karmi was killed by the Israeli army on Jan. 14, 2002.

In response to Israel’s assassination Palestinian Islamic Jihad fired over 450 rockets at Israel over a period of 48 hours until a ceasefire was reached on Nov. 14, 2019, which Islamic Jihad promptly breached by firing 5 more rockets.
