JERUSALEM (JTA) -- A television campaign airing in Arab countries to address women's issues, produced in cooperation with a United Nations agency, glorifies a female Palestinian terrorist.

The United Nations Population Fund, an international development agency that promotes a life of health and equal opportunity for all, on Thursday disassociated itself from the campaign, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Abubakar Dungus, a spokesperson for the Population Fund, told the Post that it was not consulted or involved in choosing the featured women.
