     “Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki said that the fact that the heroic Martyrs (Shahids) Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir competed among themselves to [be the first to] merit the honor of dying as Martyrs for Palestine is proof of their rare and unprecedented courage…
In an interview with Radio Mawtini (radio station of Fatah's Information and Culture Commission -Ed.) today [June 18, 2016]…Zaki described the Martyrs Jamjoum, Hijazi, and Al-Zir as symbols of honor and heroism for all Arabs. He said that they taught a clear lesson regarding all that is related to the unity of the land and the homeland, and noted that the Palestinian people still make sure to mark the anniversary of the three Martyrs, who sacrificed themselves for the homeland and in order to defend their homeland Palestine.”

Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir “committed particularly brutal murders [of Jews] at Safed and Hebron,” according to the report by British Government to the League of Nations. They were convicted of attacking British soldiers and murdering Jews in the 1929 Hebron Massacre, in which 65 Jews were murdered. They were executed by the British in 1930.
