      “In a large ceremony under the auspices of [Fatah Central Committee Secretary] Jibril Rajoub, the Bethlehem District and its Social Solidarity Committee launched the first annual ‘Female Stars of Bethlehem Ceremony 2017’ honor ceremony, through which a group of female fighters alongside female creators who excel in their professional and daily lives will be honored every year…
Rajoub noted that the honoring of the five fighters and 10 creators is part of the ongoing Palestinian national struggle. He noted that the women of Palestine draw from the giving and struggle of the first female Martyrs (Shahids) of Palestine, and prime among them Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children) and Laila Khaled (i.e., terrorist who took part in airplane hijackings), who succeeded in raising the Palestinian voice high and sounding it for the whole world.”

Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, murdering 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.

Laila Khaled - PFLP terrorist who participated in the hijacking of TWA flight 840 on Aug. 29, 1969 from Rome to Athens and the hijacking of El Al flight 219 on Sept. 6, 1970 from Amsterdam to New York. The second hijacking was averted by the pilot and security personnel on board. They shot Khaled’s accomplice, Patrick Argüello, who had murdered one of the flight attendants. Khaled was overpowered and the plane landed in London where Khaled was handed over and held by British police until she was exchanged on Oct. 1, 1970 with hostages held by the PFLP.
