Today, January 18 , is the 11th anniversary of the death as a Martyr of heroic commander Ahmed Sanaqrah. This young man – who took a rifle and followed the path of the heroes, the path of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades – was not yet 16 years old.
Sanaqrah frightened the occupier, fed it bitterness, and rattled it for six years. Israel sent huge forces and tanks after him, and every time he evaded its long arms despite them being just meters away from him.
He evaded many assassination attempts by the Zionists until he was shot by the Zionist traitor and ascended [to Heaven]."
