Hamas plans to name three areas after female "martyrs" - including Corrie

Hamas, seeing how much the naming of Dala Mughrabi Square near Ramallah upset Israelis, has announced that it will name three public areas after famous female martyrs in Gaza City.

The first will be named after Dalal Mughrabi as well.

The second will be named after Reem Riyashi, who exploded herself in 2004 at the entrance to the Erez Industrial Zone by claiming to be crippled and insisting on a body search, killing four. Hamas claimed credit for the attack.

And the third will be named after Rachel Corrie, whose parents must be enormously proud that their daughter is in such esteemed company.
