Fatah Women in Gaza Announce: "We Will Be Human Bombs"

From Fatah Women in Gaza Announce: "We Will Be Human Bombs": The Al-Aqsa Protectors, the Missiles Brigade, the Martyr Hassan Al-Madhoun Brigade, and the Homeland Strike Force, which are all part of the Fatah-affiliated Al-Aqsa Brigades, announced the formation of a joint operations room to respond to an expected Israeli invasion of Gaza in a coordinated and forceful fashion.

Many female members of the Al-Aqsa Brigades also declared their readiness to die for the Palestinian cause. "We will be human bombs and we will explode in the face of the occupation," they warned.

From Praising Terror: "Oh, Lord, martyrdom is [being done] for you," crooned a singer, as pictures of prominent Palestinian women suicide bombers, clad in white, floated across the television screen. Part of a music video that aired on April 22 on the Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation (PBC), the television network under the direct control of PA leader Mahmoud Abbas, this disturbing montage was but the latest sign that official Palestinian broadcast media have sharply increased anti-Israeli propaganda in recent days.
