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.
