(Visuals: Footage of Fatah members engaged in military training, Lebanon, 1970s) 

Song lyrics: "O self-sacrificing fighter, aim your bullets 
O self-sacrificing fighter, gather the beloved 
Your blood is Arab, Palestinian 
Your path is my path, Palestinian 
O self-sacrificing fighter, O self-sacrificing fighter 
O self-sacrificing fighter, blow up [like] a volcano 
O self-sacrificing fighter, ignite everywhere." 

Additional text posted on the official Fatah Facebook page: "The first song of the Palestinian revolution, recorded [the year of] the Launch of the Palestinian revolution in 1965, recorded in Studio 46 of The Voice of the Arabs radio station in Cairo, and re-recorded as part of the 'Revolution Songs' in 1968." 

"The Launch" refers to the beginning of Fatah on Jan. 1, 1965, when it carried out its first terror attack against Israel, attempting to blow up Israel's National Water Carrier.
