Posted text: “[District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh] Dr. [Laila] Ghannam visited the families of the village of Kubar and called on the world to intervene to stop the occupation’s aggression and the acts of piracy of its soldiers
District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Dr. Laila Ghannam today [July 26, 2017] visited the families of the village of Kubar who are subjected to daily raids, a siege, and intensifying aggression from the occupation. She called on the world to intervene immediately to stop the occupation’s aggression and the acts of piracy of its soldiers against the peaceful homes and unarmed civilians…
The district governor visited the home of the wounded prisoner, young Omar Al-Abd (i.e., terrorist, murdered 3). She noted that his mother’s arrest and the harassment of his family prove that the occupation has contempt for all of the international conventions and insists on the policy of collective punishment, which is considered a war crime. She also noted that the only thing that our young people want is to live in dignity and freedom, and that what is happening at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the occupation’s harassment and targeting of everything that is Palestinian cause everyone [to have] feelings of rage. She added that peace and stability will not be obtained as long as our people is subjected to the most awful acts, and they are targeting our holy sites without any impediment or deterrence.”

One of the images shows a sign with a picture of terrorist Omar Al-Abd on its upper left, an image of the Dome of the Rock in the bottom right and above it a drawing of a masked Arab rioter holding a slingshot and wearing the Palestinian flag, and a logo of a raised fist with the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock behind it in the bottom left.

Text on sign: “Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration (Quran, Sura 33:23, Sahih International translation)
All that is in my hands is a sharpened knife, and it answers the call of the Al-Aqsa Mosque (this line is taken from the “will” Omar Al-Abd posted on Facebook before his attack –Ed.)

Omar Al-Abd – 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and murdered 3 Israelis - Yosef, Haya, and Elad Salomon - and severely injured 1 - Tova Salomon - as they sat at their Sabbath dinner table in Halamish, north of Ramallah, on July 21, 2017. Al-Abd was shot and wounded by a neighbor and taken into Israeli custody, receiving necessary medical treatment in an Israeli hospital.
Before committing the attack, Al-Abd wrote in his "will" on Facebook that he was taking his knife to
respond to what was happening at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and did not expect to return. A week earlier, a terror attack was carried out at the Temple Mount in which 2 Israelis were murdered. Following the attack Israel closed the Temple Mount for two days and reopened it with metal detectors at the entrance to the holy site. Palestinians interpreted these measures as an “aggression” and “attack” against the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Muhammad Ahmad Muhammad Jabarin, Muhammad Hamed Abd Al-Latif Jabarin, and Muhammad Ahmad Mufaddal Jabarin - Israeli Arab terrorists aged 29, 19, and 19, who shot from the Temple Mount at Israeli policemen, murdering 2 Israeli Druze border policemen - Haiel Stawi and Kamil Shnaan, on July 14, 2017. Two of the terrorists were shot and killed by other policemen during the attack. The third terrorist was shot and killed while trying to flee.
