Posted text: “Praise and mercy for Martyr #Bassam_Al-Sayeh (i.e., terrorist, involved in murder of 2), who passed away due to two struggles: one with the disease, and the second with the occupation. We consider this a crime of premeditated murder as a result of medical negligence in the occupation’s prison.
#Al-Sayeh_is_a_Martyr, and the Martyrs and prisoners are the most honorable among us, and words are not enough [to describe] their sacrifices.”

Bassam Al-Sayeh – Palestinian terrorist who authorized and raised funds for the shooting attack by a Hamas terror cell in which Israelis Naama and Eitam Henkin (also an American citizen) were murdered on Oct. 1, 2015, in front of their four children, aged 9, 7, 4, and 4 months. Al-Sayeh was arrested on Oct. 8, 2015, and died in prison of cancer – a pre-existing condition from before his arrest – on Sept. 8, 2019.
