( A newly released Palestinian Authority TV (PA TV) music video honors three terrorists responsible for several terrorist attacks against Israelis, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported. The terrorists were involved in two suicide bombings that wounded more than 100 people and killed 35. They are now serving 40 life sentences combined.

In addition to showing footage of Abbas Al-Sayid, Marwan Barghouti and Ahmad Sa’adat, the video plays a song stating that “as long as it may last, the prison’s doors will not stay shut [forever]... the clouds will disappear, and our honor will be restored,” according to PMW.

PMW recently exposed another video glorifying Palestinian terrorists held in Israeli jails. The video, which is dedicated to “our brave prisoners,” shows pictures of seven terrorists responsible for the deaths of more than 100 Israelis. After PMW’s publicized the video, however, PA TV removed the pictures of the terrorists from the video.
