Palestinian Authority head Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction continues to praise and celebrate the atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists against Israeli citizens, as the death toll from the terror group’s Oct. 7 massacre passes 1,300, with some 3,000 wounded and more than 100 hostages taken into the Gaza Strip.

Fatah’s Bethlehem Branch posted a video showing four images as a song plays in the background. One image portrays Israelis as a rat being trampled by a boot with the colors of the Palestinian flag on its sole:

Another is of a uniformed man paragliding onto the P.A. map of “Palestine,” referring to Hamas terrorists who paraglided into Israel during the launch of the terror group’s pogrom. The logo is of “The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades – the Wasps’ Nest.”

Another image shows uniformed terrorists holding assault rifles and sitting in a circle, apparently before setting out to conduct a terror attack. The logo is of “The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades – the Wasps’ Nest.”

The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades logo includes crossed rifles and a grenade above the Dome of the Rock, with Palestinian flags below it. The text at the top of the logo reads: “So fight them and Allah will punish them at your hands, put them to shame, help you overcome them, and soothe the hearts of the believers” [Quran 9:14, Sahih International translation]. At the bottom is written: “The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades—the Wasps’ Nest”
