Headline: “[PLO Executive Committee member] Dr. [Ahmed] Majdalani: Majdalani: "The Israeli occupation denied 16 families the joy of high school matriculation results”
      “Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) Secretary-General and PLO Executive Committee member…Dr. [Ahmed] Majdalani said in a press statement that reached Amad (i.e., independent Palestinian news website): ‘In these moments, we feel the absence of the 16 student Martyrs (Shahids) who were supposed to sit the high school matriculation exams, but the occupation forces, their violence, and their aggression prevented them from taking this test and denied their families the joy [of high school matriculation.] This is in addition to 20 high school students who were recently arrested and are behind the bars of the occupation’s prisons, which confirms that every Palestinian is a target for this fascist government.’”

The 16 “Martyr” students are as follows:

Mustafa Al-Khatib – 18-year-old Palestinian terrorist who tried to stab a soldier near the Lions' Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 12, 2015 and was shot and killed by Israeli police.

Dania Arshid – 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist who when asked to identify herself at a military checkpoint near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Oct. 25, 2015, refused and ran towards the Israeli border policemen with a drawn knife. She was shot and killed by them.

Ahmad Abu Al-Rab – Palestinian terrorist who, together with another terrorist, tried to stab an Israeli soldier at the Jalame checkpoint near Jenin on Nov. 2, 2015. A soldier shot at them and killed Al-Rab, and the second terrorist was arrested.

Ahmad Kamil – 16-year-old Palestinian terrorist who disguised himself as a candy seller and tried to stab a security guard at the Jalame checkpoint near Jenin on Oct. 24, 2015. He was shot and killed by a security guard.

Ashraqat Taha Ahmad Qatanani - 18-year-old female Palestinian terrorist who attempted to stab an Israeli girl, running after her with a drawn knife, on Nov. 22, 2015, at a junction near Nablus. Former head of the Shomron regional council Gershon Mesika foiled her attempt by running his car into her when he saw her attempted attack. Israeli soldiers then shot Qatanani. The PA reported that she died of her injuries, but this has not been officially confirmed.

Adnan Al-Mashni was killed on Jan. 12, 2016 when Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian terrorist who tried to stab them in Beit Anoun northeast of Hebron. Apparently Al-Mashni did not take an active part in the attack.

Muhammad Halabiyeh – 18-year-old Palestinian terrorist who died on Jan. 24, 2016, at the Israeli security fence near Abu Dis, east of Jerusalem, when a bomb that he apparently intended to use against Israeli border police forces who were passing by at the time exploded.

Muhammad Zaghlawan and Labib Azem – 17-year-old Palestinian terrorists who infiltrated the town of Eli southeast of Ariel, breaking through the town’s security fence on March 2, 2016. Armed with clubs and knives they broke into the home of reserve army commander Roi Harel. Zaghlawan and Azem wounded Harel but he managed to push them out. When Israeli soldiers and members of the town’s security team found Zaghlawan and Azem lying in wait for more victims, the terrorists tried to attack and were shot and killed by the soldiers. An improvised handgun was found by the town’s security fence where Zaghlawan and Azem apparently had dropped it.
