Fatah Lebanon praises female terrorists like Dalal Mughrabi, Wafa Idris, Ayyat Al-Akhras as role models

Headline: "The Palestinian woman's struggle: more than half of society"
Published in Fatah Lebanon's magazine Al-Quds
     "The Palestinian woman takes part in all areas of the struggle. She is a comrade in arms before she is the mother of self-sacrificing fighters (Fedayeen) and the sister of prisoners.
We see her in all of the Palestinian councils and the popular demonstrations. She has succeeded in providing a framework for her presence in the struggle by establishing women's organizations and social associations, and for this purpose the Committee for Women's Affairs was established, which is a coalition of several Palestinian women's frameworks, which are affiliated with the Palestinian parties and factions that are PLO members. The Al-Quds newspaper met with members of the committee during their visit to Lebanon, in order to learn more about the situation of the Palestinian woman in the homeland... Before the outbreak of the Palestinian revolution the Palestinian woman was active in all areas of life, and stories from before the Nakba (i.e., "the catastrophe," Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) bear witness to this. During the offensive of the Zionist gangs against the Palestinian cities and villages, the Palestinian woman served as a doctor and assistant to all the Jihad fighters. However, what the Palestinian revolution succeeded in planting in the Palestinian consciousness is that a woman can carry a rifle and carry out operations (i.e., terror attacks) against the occupation, and who does not remember the first female prisoner Fatima Barnawi or the Martyrs (Shahidas) Dalal Mughrabi, Wafa Idris, Ayyat Al-Akhras, and their like?"
