(JNS.org) On the 11th anniversary of the day she killed two Israelis and injured hundreds of others in a Jerusalem terror attack, Fatah called Wafa Idris—who according to Fatah was the first female Palestinian suicide bomber—a “beautiful flower,” Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reported. 

Idris’s 2002 bombing “turned upside down Israeli security considerations that had focused on observing young Palestinian men only,” Fatah posted in its Facebook page Jan. 28.

“The hero whose name the Zionists will remember well and so will Palestinians; the hero who sacrificed herself and her body for Palestine and became a symbol of the struggle and of Palestinian loyalty through one of the most honorable Martyrdom-seeking operations,” Fatah’s description of Idris read.

“Wafa’s mother said that she is proud of her daughter, and hopes that more girls will follow in her footsteps,” Fatah wrote, according to PMW.
