Ramallah to honor remains of Savoy Hotel terrorists
The Ramallah municipality approved the construction of a mausoleum to honor the Palestinian terrorists who killed 11 Israelis in the 1975 attack on Tel Aviv’s Savoy Hotel.
The vote was reported last week by the PA daily newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida and translated into English by Palestinian Media Watch.
The eight terrorists, members of the Palestine Liberation Organization, traveled by boat from Lebanon to Tel Aviv, where they took over the Savoy Hotel. Seven of the terrorists were killed during an Israeli rescue attempt, during which eight hostages and three soldiers were killed.
The terrorists’ remains were among the bodies of 91 Palestinian terrorists repatriated to the Palestinian Authority two months ago as an Israeli good-will gesture.
