Fatah Facebook: Suicide bomber Zainab Abu Salem is "the heroic female Martyrdom-seeker"

Text: "The eighth anniversary of [the death] of the female Martyrdom-seeker Zainab Abu Salem. Today, Sunday, Sept. 22, is the anniversary of the [death] of 18 year-old heroic female Martyrdom-seeker Zainab Abu Salem.
The female Martyrdom-seeker lived in the Askar refugee camp in the city of Nablus and belonged to the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Fatah's military wing. When she died a Martyr she was determined to do a deed only a few knew about in the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades. When she arrived at the bus stop in the French Hill settlement neighborhood in East Jerusalem, an [Israeli] Border Police soldier approached her to inspect her bag and she immediately blew herself up. She wore a hijab (religious headscarf) and when she blew herself up, the hijab didn't leave her head. She killed two soldiers and wounded 17, three of them seriously."
