Wafa Idris is the first Palestinian woman who committed a suicide attack in Palestine. On January 27th, 2002, she blew herself up in a downtown Jerusalem shopping mall, killing one Israeli man and wounding several others. As the first female martyr to die for the Palestinian cause, her death has reverberated both at the national and the international level. In the aftermath of her death, Arabic medias glorified Idris and hailed her as the new breed of Palestinian heroes. The progressive mythification of Wafa Idris will be shown in this article.
