Fatah Facebook video: The "triumphant brigades" carried out the second Intifada under Arafat's leadership

Fatah recently posted on its official Facebook page an excerpt from the film The Revolutionists of the Land, produced by its military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades.

Narration: "The heroes Yasser Arafat, Abu Jihad, Abu Iyad (arch-terrorists responsible for killing numerous Israelis)... and others maintained the campaign against the Zionist enemy everywhere: The great operations (i.e., terror attacks) reached the shores of Tel Aviv: Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., bus hijacking in 1978, 37 killed) and the Dimona operation (i.e., bus hijacking in 1988, 3 killed). They were carried out overseas as well, to release prisoners from prison. The world stood still in view of the Munich operation (i.e., the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Olympics in Munich, 1972)."

Excerpt from the film "21 Hours at Munich" about the murder of the 11 Israeli athletes in 1972

Narration: "The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades were established in 2000 in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, by order of the late Martyr Yasser Arafat, as Fatah's military wing. The triumphant Brigades began their military operations during the second Intifada, the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005). They instigated a series of quality operations and Martyrdom-seeking operations (i.e., suicide attacks) against the Zionist entity by attacking the settlements and carrying out Martyrdom-seeking operations in the occupied territories. They [the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades] excelled in every attack."

Narration: "The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades are a continuation of the long struggle, paved by the Fatah Movement, beginning with the first announcement (i.e., bombing of Israel's National Water Carrier, 1965), that created true resistance, which terrified the occupation through a series of operations that shook the heart of the Zionist [entity]... The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades still have a finger on the trigger. They have revolutionists and Martyrdom-seekers 'who have been true to their covenant with Allah.' (Quran)"
