The paper summaries the Palestinian suicide martyrs (Istishhadiyin) according to their Names, Age, District, Date of Martyrdom, Way of Martyrdom, Place of Martyrdom and Party Affiliation. The Palestinian suicide martyrs (Istishhadiyin) were able to implement two hundred qualitative martyrdom operations that rocked Israel and raised a large wave of reactions locally and internationally. It is rare to find a similar phenomenon to this one with this huge number of Palestinian suicide martyrs (Istishhadiyin) in any other place in the world. The strangling Israeli siege, starvation policy, assassinations and inhuman scenes which Palestinians are subjected to at the checkpoints and others are all reasons that had neutralized life and death and transformed all Palestinians into a martyr producing cell which was no longer confined to one faction, trend, gender, population cluster or other, but they belong to the entire Palestinian people. All segments of the Palestinian people, Islamic, national, left-wings, men, women, youth and old people have practiced this form of resistance. It is an expression of a Palestinian popular awareness of the depth and nature of the conflict with the Jewish existence in Palestine. It is also a logical extension of the Palestinian struggle which has been ongoing for more than a hundred years.
