fatah tanzim


Tanzim (Arabic: تنظيم, Organization in Arabic) is a faction of the Palestinian Fatah movement. It is seen as a more militant "new guard" within Fatah, as opposed to the "old guard" which promoted the Oslo peace process. Tanzim came to prominence in the street fighting which marked the beginning of the second Palestinian Intifada. Its members tend to be younger than those of other Fatah factions, often having grown up in the post-Oslo era. One of its leaders is Marwan Barghouti, who is currently held prisoner in Israel for the murder of civilians. . Many Tanzim members have joined the al-Shaid Yasser Arafat Brigades (formerly the al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades). Tanzim has recruited a number of female suicide bombers , including Andaleeb Takatka, a 20-year-old Bethlehem woman who, on April 12, 2002, detonated an explosive belt at a Jerusalem bus stop, killing six Israelis, and injuring sixty.
