Martyrs’ families: first degree relatives of the Martyr (father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter, husband, wife), and if such do not exist – one of the Martyr’s legal heirs.
Every member of the Martyr’s family (father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter, husband, wife) is entitled to be a member of the [National] Association [of the Families of the Martyrs of Palestine], and if there are no first degree relatives, membership will be granted to one of the Martyr’s legal heirs.
