Abu Jihad

Israel Declassifies Soldier's Account Of Killing PLO Leader

11/01/2012 - 20:00


Israel’s military censor authorized for publication the testimony of an army officer who said he killed PLO cofounder Abu Jihad in 1988.

Nahum Lev, the commander of the operation which ended in Abu Jihad’s death in Tunis, told a reporter for Yedioth Ahronoth in an interview before his own death in 2000 that he had killed Abu Jihad, who cofounded the Palestine Liberation Organization. 

Lev died in a car accident. The censor only recently lifted a ban on publication, and the interview appeared in Friday's paper.
