The cartoon shows Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu helping an Islamic State terrorist aim his machine gun from a perch on the Eiffel Tower.

The watchdog Palestinian Media Watch reports that it was posted to Fatah’s official Facebook page on Monday.

The cartoon is not new — it was posted to an official Iranian news site in the wake of a previous wave of terror attacks in France in January of this year.

It also participated in a contest for anti-Islamic State cartoons in Iran in May.
