Fatah honors female suicide bomber who killed 2

Zainab Abu Salem was a female suicide bomber from Fatah, who blew herself up at the French Hill junction in Jerusalem on Sept. 22, 2004, killing 2 Israeli border policemen and wounding approximately 30 civilians. Fatah glorified her in this Facebook post:
"From the memory of history: The anniversary of the Martyrdom (Shahada) of Martyrdom-seeker (i.e., suicide bomber) Zainab Abu Salem of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Fatah's military wing, is September 22. She was an 18-year-old Palestinian girl from the Askar refugee camp in Nablus.
The moment of her Martyrdom: The Martyrdom-seeker went to a bus station in the French Hill neighborhood, a settlement in Jerusalem. A Zionist Border Police soldier approached her to inspect the contents of her bag and then she blew herself up with an bomb she had in her possession. She killed two Zionist soldiers and wounded 16 others. After the operation Martyr Zainab's head was severed from her body, while her hijab (religious headscarf) continued to cover her hair. With this she became the eleventh female Martyrdom-seeker (i.e., suicide bomber) in Palestine. May she rest in peace."
