The former head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement died Saturday night after a long illness. He was 62.So he was even reduced to comatose in his last years. He deserved that too.
Ramadan Shalah had been in a coma for more than three years after a series of strokes that followed heart surgery, the terrorist group said. It didn't say where he died, but he is believed to have been in Lebanon.
Shalah led the Iranian-backed group for over 20 years, after its founder, Fathi Shikaki, was eliminated in Malta in a hit widely attributed to Israel. In 2018, the group named Shalah's deputy, Ziad Nakhalah, as a new leader.
Shalah was on the US "most wanted list" of terrorist suspects with a $5 million reward for information leading to his arrest or conviction.
