Posted text: “Today is the 16th anniversary of the arrest of the heroic prisoner, Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (i.e., Fatah’s military wing) member Thaer Hammad (i.e., terrorist, murdered 10), in 2002 (sic., March 3, 2018, the day after the Facebook post, was the 16th anniversary of Hammad’s attack in 2002; his arrest was in October 2004). He carried out the Wadi Al-Haramiya operation (i.e., terror attack), in which 11 Israeli soldiers and 1 Israeli settler were killed, and nine others were wounded (sic., 3 civilians and 7 soldiers were murdered, and 6 were wounded). There are those who call him ‘the Wadi Al-Haramiya sniper,’ as he was called by leader Marwan Barghouti (i.e., terrorist who orchestrated three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered).
Heroic prisoner Thaer Hammad, we miss you. Allah willing you will soon be among us, our people needs men like you.”
