Posted text: “Today is the anniversary of the deaths as Martyrs (Shahids) of heroes Muhammad Jamjoum, Ataa Al-Zir, and Fuad Hijazi (see note below –Ed.).
The three Martyrs were executed at Acre Prison on Tuesday, June 17, 1930, following the 1929 Al-Buraq Rebellion (i.e., 1929 Hebron Massacre and riots ), which included many Palestinian cities and villages, prime among them Jerusalem, Jaffa, Haifa, and Safed. The British colonialism authorities sentenced to death 26 Palestinian fighters who participated in this rebellion. Afterwards, it changed the sentences of 23 of them to a life sentence, and carried out the death penalty against these three heroes.
May Allah spread his mercy upon them and let them dwell in Paradise.”
