A Fatah poster created to celebrate the 56th anniversary of “the Launch” of Fatah, counted from its first terror attack against Israel in 1965.

The central image on the poster is a line of masked men wearing keffiyehs and holding Kalashnikov assault rifles. In the background, at the top of the image is the Dome of the Rock, the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Palestinian flag, and a keffiyeh pattern.

Revolution until victory”

The poster also shows a logo for Fatah’s 56th anniversary. On the right side of the logo is the number “56”; at the bottom is the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel together with the PA areas as “Palestine”; circling the logo is the Palestinian flag; in its center is the Fatah logo which includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of “Palestine,” with “Intilaqa” which means  “the Launch” written underneath it; and inside the number “5” is an image of the former PLO and PA Chairman Yasser Arafat.
Above the logo at the top of the image is the Fatah logo, and below it the text says: “The Palestinian National Liberation Movement – ‘Fatah.’”

Intilaqa - "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.
