Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party released a video in which terrorists of Fatah’s terror wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, are seen participating and bragging about their role in the October 7 slaughter of Israelis.

The video was publicized on the day of the massacre, in which terrorists murdered more than 1,400 Israelis. The faces and voices of the terrorists were blurred and muffled by Fatah to hide their identities.

The video opens by showing Fatah terrorists with yellow Fatah headbands firing Kalashnikov rifles at an Israeli kibbutz. Screams of “Allahu Akbar” (“Allah is greatest”) are played in the background.

Text on screen: “The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades — military publicity — live images from the battle”

A Fatah terrorist then presents captured Israeli military equipment and says:

Fatah terrorist: “We have plundered from them … Today we broke into the military post Nahal Oz [sic. It is a civilian kibbutz] and we hit what we hit, we took as plunder what we took,  and we killed soldiers and stepped on their heads.”

PMW has blurred the picture of the Fatah terrorist stamping on the head of a murdered Israeli. Fatah released it without blurring to maximize the horror. You can see that photo here.

Another Fatah terrorist gloats that the video of the dead Israeli will be seen by Israelis: “You [Israelis] will see this with your own eyes, Allah willing.”

Another Fatah terrorist continues to brag about Fatah’s participation in the slaughter: “Allahu Akbar and praise Allah … From the heart of these temporary [Israeli] settlements, Allah willing, we had a prominent and clear role.”

The Palestinian Authority (PA), Fatah, and Hamas all describe all of Israel as “occupied territory” and all Israeli towns and cities as “settlements.”

Here Fatah boasts that the “settlements” of southern Israel are “temporary.”

The final picture shows a Fatah terrorist raising one finger — symbolizing Allah — standing in front of a burning Israeli vehicle.

The video carries the logo of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, which includes this quote from the Koran:

“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”

[Koran 9:14, Sahih International translation]

The posted text on Telegram that accompanied the video: “Your brothers — the fighters of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades/Fatah from the battlefield.”

Palestinian Media Watch exposed another video in which Fatah’s terror wing bragged that it helped Hamas “behind enemy lines” and praised the massacre as a first step to liberate all of “Palestine.”

As noted above, Fatah’s attack was on Nahal Oz, an Israeli civilian kibbutz, not a military post. In addition, Hamas and Fatah terrorists murdered mostly Israeli civilians in the massacre, not soldiers.

PA Chairman Abbas’ Fatah movement has been very outspoken about its support for Hamas’ terror war on Israel and the terrorists’ massacre on Israeli civilians. Palestinian Media Watch exposed that:

  • Fatah’s terror wing urged Palestinians to “strike the sons of apes and pigs … slaughter everyone Israeli
  • Fatah’s Student Movement has called for murder of Jews and terror in the West Bank
  • Fatah sees Hamas’ atrocities as a “heroic operation” and the massacre brought “a morning of victory, joy, and pride”
