The mother of Martyr (Shahid) Qusai Al-Amour (i.e., rioter killed while throwing rocks at an Israeli border police officer) visited Martyr Qusai Al-Amour [Summer] Camp, and said that it is an honor for her that the camp is named after her Martyr son. She also said: ‘We all are prepared to sacrifice ourselves for the land of the homeland,’ and emphasized ‘the importance of belonging [to the homeland], whatever the price may be, even if it costs us our lives.’”

Qusai Al-Amour – 17-year-old Palestinian rioter who threw rocks at an Israeli border police officer during violent clashes with the Israeli army near the village of Tuqu’ next to Bethlehem on Jan. 16, 2017. The officer responded by shooting and wounding Al-Amour with small metal Ruger bullets, which are considered to be non-lethal and meant for crowd dispersal; Al-Amour later died of his wounds.
