Posted text: “The anniversary of the death of Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (i.e., Fatah's military wing) commander Marwan Zalum, April 22, 2002…

After the outbreak of the blessed Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005), Marwan Zalum established military cells in Hebron (the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades) [parentheses in source] and was the commander of these brigades. Marwan Zalum was responsible for many shooting operations against outposts and self-sacrificing operations (i.e., suicide bombings) that the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades carried out, the most prominent of which was the operation of Martyrdom-seeker Andalib Takatka (i.e., suicide bomber, murdered 6)

On April 22, 2002, at approximately 11:40 p.m., an Israeli Apache helicopter fired three rockets at a civilian vehicle in the heart of Hebron… in which Martyr Marwan Zalum and his comrade Samir Abu Rajab – who were wanted by the occupation for a long time – were riding. The rockets struck the vehicle directly and tore the bodies of the two Martyrs into hundreds of pieces…

Heroic Martyr Marwan Kayed Zalum was a fighter who fought a holy war for Allah…

He knew that the end of every Jihad fighter and fighter is Martyrdom-death (Shahada), which he hoped for…

Marwan Zalum – you set Palestine before your eyes, placed your soul in your palm, and merited Martyrdom-death.”

Marwan Zalum - Palestinian terrorist and commander of the Hebron branch of the Tanzim (Fatah terror faction). He was responsible for a number of terror attacks in the Hebron region, including sending the terrorist who in a shooting attack murdered the infant Shalhevet Pass in her stroller on March 26, 2001. Zalum also provided the explosive device used in a suicide attack at the entrance to Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda open market on April 12, 2002, in which 6 Israelis were murdered and 80 wounded. He organized the planting of a bomb in southern Hebron, which murdered Israeli soldier Shai Cohen on July 9, 2001, and initiated a shooting attack at the entrance to Kiryat Arba on July 12, 2001, in which 1 person was murdered. Zalum was killed by the Israeli army on April 22, 2002.

Yasser Arafat – Founder of Fatah and former chairman of the PLO and PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.
