"Al-Asifa" was a pseudonym for Fatah in its first years. It later became the name of Fatah’s military wing in the 1960s and 1970s. The name "Al-Asifa" is sometimes used as a synonym for the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades – Fatah’s military wing today.

Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.
