The hardest core of all ‎Palestinian factions, a symbol of defiance ‎against the Israeli occupation generals ‎and the wall of national and military ‎action; a field commander untroubled by ‎threats and a supporter of all revolutions ‎for liberation in the world; the greatest ‎school of struggle, from which the greatest ‎fighters emerged.”‎

Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder ‎of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He ‎headed the PLO terror organization's ‎military wing and planned many deadly ‎Fatah terror attacks. These attacks, which ‎killed a total of 125 people, included the ‎most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking ‎of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of ‎them children.‎
