This is how Hamas is completing the occupation’s role in Gaza, by fighting the names of the leaders and Martyrs (Shahids)
Hamas changed the name of Khalil Al-Wazir [Abu Jihad] High School in Gaza (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 125) to Hassan Al-Harazin School (apparently a private donor to the school –Ed.), as part of its chain of ongoing attacks on the schools bearing the names of the fighters and Martyrs of the Palestinian revolution (i.e., from Fatah).
Memory is the main enemy of Israel and Hamas.”
