Fatah is here, and Fatah strikes everywhere.
In the heart of the occupying entity, on Saturday March 11, 1978, the self-sacrificing fighters (Fedayeen) of Al-Asifa (i.e., Fatah military unit) disembarked on the coasts of Ma’agan Michael (i.e., Israeli kibbutz) and carried out the greatest operation (i.e., terror attack) in the history of the Palestinian revolution.”
