"I congratulate my son... he died as a Martyr" - says mother of Hamas terrorist

Mother of terrorist Ahmed Zahran: "[The Jews] have been our enemies since the days of the Prophet, May Allah take revenge on them in this world and in the Afterlife... I congratulate my son on this happy day on which he died as a Martyr... I am proud of my children. I am proud of them. They are not spies, not land sellers, not collaborators, not drug addicts, and not gamblers. My children are going on the path of truth.”

September 2021 raids on Hamas terror cell - Israeli forces conducted raids on Sept. 26, 2021 to arrest members of a Hamas terror cell in several locations in the West Bank, in order to thwart imminent large-scale terror attacks that the cell was planning to launch in the West Bank and Israel. Five Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists were killed after opening fire on Israeli forces during the raids, and approximately 20 members of the cell were arrested and weapons were seized. The five killed in the raids were: Ahmed Zahran, Muhammad Hmeidan, Zakariya Badwan, Osama Sobeh, and Yusuf Sobeh.

When referring to “my children” the mother was probably including her other son Zahran Zahran – Palestinian terrorist and senior member of the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas’ military wing) who was involved in the Afula bus bombing on April 6, 1994 (8 murdered, 55 injured) and the kidnapping and murder of Israeli soldier Nachshon Wachsman in October 1994. He was killed by Israeli security forces on Sept. 28, 1998.
