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.

Some settlers reportedly also entered Palestinian villages in the area.
U.S. track and field star Allyson Felix, who won three gold medals at the Summer Olympics in London this year, is currently visiting Tel Aviv, where she took part in the city's Nike Night Run on Tuesday, Israel Hayom reported.
“I’m extremely excited about coming to Israel for the Nike Night Run,” Felix said in a statement before her trip. “I hope I can inspire the runners of Tel Aviv to not only give their best, but to beat their best, just like I did this summer in London.”
