Text on screen: “Nineteen years since the death of the uncompromising resistance member
A long journey of struggle
Whose title was ‘Martyrdom on the land of Palestine’
He joined the ranks of the revolution at age 18
And led military teams that inflicted heavy losses on the Israeli occupation in the Interior (i.e., “Palestine”) and outside (i.e., abroad)
This is Marwan Zalum…
He joined Fatah and became one of its most prominent fighters”
