Ghassan Al-Shak’a, member of the PLO Executive Council and head of the Foreign Relations Department, together with all the department’s officials, hereby inform the Palestinian people and the world of the passing of the great national fighter and leader [rank] Amin Al-Hindi (Abu Fouzi). On behalf of the honored President Abbas, we convey condolences to the family of the deceased and to the Palestinian people over the passing of a person whose death is mourned by the nation, who was one of the pillars of the Palestinian struggle, and whose bravery represented the embodiment of dignity and glory in the history of the Arab nation.
