Anchor: The Nidal Al-Amoudi Battalion of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades held the graduation ceremony of its seventh class, the Martyr Abu Ali Shahin Class, at the Nidal Military Academy in the south of the Gaza Strip last Thursday.
Abu Ahmad: To hell with all those who conspire and all those who surrender. They forget – or they pretend to forget – that Fatah is the leader of the armed struggle. It is the leader of martyrdom-seekers. It [fired] the first bullet and it [threw] the first stone. This is Fatah.
