Fatah honors Palestinian female suicide bombers

"The Fatah movement emphasized, in an announcement by the Information Committee of the Mobilization and Organization Commission, that Palestinian women continue in their campaign of struggle alongside the men, challenging the arrogance of the occupation (i.e., Israel) and its violations. The announcement called upon all international forums, humanitarian bodies and bodies dealing with human rights to act to pressure the occupation authorities to release all female and male prisoners.
The [Fatah] announcement addressed the contribution of female Palestinian members of Fatah to the founding of the unions and [professional] associations, and their role in advancing the [Palestinian] cause and maintaining the unity of the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) - the sole legitimate representative of our Palestinian people. Thus, the first female Palestinian Shahida (Martyr), Shadia Abu Ghazaleh [was active in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terror organization and was involved in many attacks against Israel. While preparing a bomb for an attack in Tel Aviv in 1968, it accidentally detonated and killed her.]; Shahida Dalal Mughrabi [led the most lethal terror attack in Israel's history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians]; and others like them were among those who sacrificed their blood for the sake of liberation."
