possessed 50% of Sabra's original superhuman abilities including
superhuman strength, speed, reflexes, endurance, durability and a
healing factor. She was immune to all of Sabra's powers and weapons.
Windstorm was also able to control the gale winds of the desert. (see comments)
Weakness: Sabra was able to take the powers away from Windstorm at any time with a mere touch.History:
(Marvel Super-Heroes III#6/4) - Windstorm and the other five members of the Israelis for Anarchy took control over a Kibbutz where they took the deaf son of an American ambassador hostage. They killed a teacher and tossed his corpse to the outside when they were surrounded by the military. Suddenly the military left and Windstorm knew that Sabra had arrived. Windstorm revealed to another terrorist that she was once saved by Sabra and empowered with special abilities and that today she would kill Sabra. Sabra defeated Windstorm's allies and attacked her with energy-quills after breaking through a wall. Windstorm couldn't be affected by Sabra's powers, but it was only a distraction to rescue the deaf boy. Windstorm saw through Sabra's plan and stunned her with a gust of wind. Then she turned around to bring down the wall upon the deaf boy to make Sabra suffer. Sabra took Windstorm into the sky and tossed her as far away as possible. She returned to the Kibbutz to save the boy, but Windstorm was back too early and hit Sabra as hard as possible while telling Sabra that life meant nothing to her. Sabra had enough of Windstorm and took her powers away from her, which returned Windstorm to the life she had chosen before Sabra helped her. After Sabra was done she left Windstorm lying on the ground, but soon an ambulance arrived to bring Windstorm away.

AFAIK Sabra was never seen controlling any winds. Perhaps she had lost this power to Windstorm when she transferred 50% of her abilities to her a long time ago (long ago could be before her first appearance in comics) or it was a natural ability of Windstorm.
BTW Windstorm's costume seen on the images was the official Israelis for Anarchy outfit. Except for the headband!
I wonder why Sabra didn't take away Windstorm's powers earlier. Sure Sabra originally wanted to save a life and she probably couldn't find Windstorm for some time, but even in the story when Sabra finally met her she waited far too long and endangered the boy by doing so.
