Fatah names brigade after terrorist Wafa Idris

Al-Quds, Palestinian daily  |
      "Senior officials in the Fatah Movement have said that the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades has recently created a women's brigade in order for women to take an active part in the  war being fought in the Palestinian areas. The purpose of this brigade is to carry out attacks on the Israeli home front. The unit has been named 'the Brigade in Honor of the Martyr Wafa Idris.'"

Note: Wafa Idris was the first Palestinian female suicide bomber. She killed one and injured over 100 in her attack in central Jerusalem in 2002. As a volunteer for the Palestinian Red Crescent, she was able to bypass Israeli security and enter Jerusalem in a Palestinian ambulance.
