11 Years After Al-Aqsa Intifada, Al-Qassam Brigades Take Stock, Take Pride In Suicide Bombings
To mark the 11th anniversary of the beginning of the Al-Aqsa Intifada, the website of the 'Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas's military wing, launched a special page titled "The Al-Aqsa Intifada A Shining Light in the History of Palestine." The page features a document with information on the Brigades' military operations, including statistics of Israeli and their own casualties. In the document, the Brigades also proudly present the suicide attacks that they carried out, including the 2002 Passover massacre at the Park Hotel in Netanya, in which 30 Israelis were killed, and the June 2001 suicide bombing outside the Dolphi discothque in Tel Aviv, in which 21 Israelis, most of them teenagers, were killed. Also mentioned are the 2008 Mercaz HaRav shooting, in which eight yeshiva students were killed, and the April 2011 rocket attack on an Israeli school bus on the Gaza border, which caused the death of an Israeli teenager. The document concludes with a pledge to continue in the path of jihad until all the lands of Palestine are liberated.
