The Palestinian Authority [PA] has named a summer camp for girls
after the first woman suicide bomber - Wafa Idris. Idris murdered 1
and injured over 150 in Jerusalem, when she blew herself up on
January 27, 2002. This is a continuation of PA policy of naming
educational programs, schools, and summer camps after terrorists,
including, suicide bombers.
The camp received UN funding through UNICEF.
The following is from the article that appeared in a PA daily:
“Yesterday, activities ended in the camp named after the Shahida

organizing committee of the city’s Scouts participated.
