Posted text: “Today is the 30th anniversary of the gliders operation (i.e., terrorist attack, 6 murdered) that was carried out by self-sacrificing fighters Khaled Akar from Syria and Mayloud Bin Najeh Nouma from Tunisia. Mayloud’s hang glider landed in the occupied strip in southern Lebanon (i.e., security zone), and he clashed with the occupation before he died as a Martyr (Shahid). This was while Khaled landed at the ‘Gibor’ [Israeli army] camp in northern occupied Palestine, killed 6 soldiers of a Golani unit and wounded 20 others (sic., 7) before he died as a Martyr.
Glory to the Martyrs”
