Palestinians admit the battle for the Jenin refugee camp that was touted as a massacre of thousands of innocent civilians was actually a “military to military battle” between Israeli forces and Palestinian “armed terrorists,” in which most of the 52 casualties were fighters.

A study to be released next month by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, or JCPA, reveals Palestinian sources have confirmed the massacre myth, reports the Jerusalem Post, which obtained a copy of the 35-page analysis.

According to the Post, researchers examined a wide variety of recent Palestinian newspapers, books and websites, and found that terror groups Fatah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas armed themselves with automatic weapons, grenades, anti-tank missiles and explosives in preparation for confrontation with IDF troops during Israel’s eight-day offensive against terror in April 2002.
