On Jan. 13, Muhammad Mansour was kidnapped by Fatah Tanzim terrorists in the Balata refugee camp for being suspected of cooperating with Israel.
According to the terrorists, Mansour admitted that he cooperated with Israel and worked with an Israel Security Agency (ISA) officer, having passed on information that led to the arrest and death of several senior fugitives in the camp.
After his interrogation, Mansour was brought before a Muslim cleric who heard his confession before Mansour was executed, in order to add religious credibility to the confession.
The next evening, residents of Balata were called to gather in the marketplace in order to observe the execution. Thousands heeded the call.
Mansour, his hands bound, was ordered to kneel on the ground. Tanzim terrorists shot him in full view of the crowd. When Mansour fell to the ground, one of them emptied an entire clip into his head.
The mother of Nadr Abu Lil stabbed Mansour’s corpse and gouged out its eyes. The mother of Hashem Abu Hamdan and his brothers gashed the corpse with knives and axes.
When an ambulance came to collect the body, it was stoned by the mob. The ambulance driver was beaten and forced to flee the scene.
The mob set out for Mansour’s house and was met by his father who declared that his son was a traitor whom he disowned. Thus the mob was deterred from burning the home.
The State of Israel wishes to clarify that Muhammad Mansour had no connection whatsoever with any ISA officials or with any other Israeli elements.
