Ramallah municipality plan terrorist tribute graves

The Ramallah municipality, the Palestinian Authority’s seat of government, is planning to build a mausoleum to honour Palestinian Liberation Organisation terrorists responsible for the deaths of 11 Israelis in the 1975 Savoy Hotel attack.
In March 1975, eight terrorists travelled by boat from Lebanon to a Tel Aviv beach. They took over the Savoy Hotel and took the guests as hostages. The next morning, Israeli forces attacked and killed seven of the terrorists. Eight hostages and three soldiers were killed by the terrorists during the attack.

The bodies of the terrorist murderers had until recently been buried in a cemetery in Israel designated for terrorists. Two months ago, Israel transferred 91 bodies to the PA as a goodwill gesture, including the bodies of the terrorists from the Savoy Hotel attack.
