Girl to terrorist prisoners: “I swear by the Jihad fighters, we’ll trample the necks of the Zionists and make a path out of them”

Rama: “I send greetings to all the male and female prisoners and especially to my uncle Ayman [Al-Dik]... and I dedicate a poem to them with sounds of joy:

Do not think that the prison has humiliated us,
Our rifles are on our shoulders, and our spoons are in our hands 
I swear by your head, Ayman, and by the Jihad fighters and prisoners
We have seen trouble many times in Palestine and we were saved from it...

We will trample the necks of the Zionists and make a path out of them.”

Ayman Al-Dik – the girl’s imprisoned uncle. PMW was unable to determine the nature of his crimes.

“Our spoons are in our hands” refers to the 2021 Gilboa Prison escape – 6 Palestinian terrorist prisoners escaped from Israel's Gilboa Prison on Sept. 6, 2021, by widening the hole of the shower drainpipe in the floor of their cell. One terrorist is from Fatah - Zakariya Zubeidi, and the other five are from Islamic Jihad - Ayham Kamamji, Muhammad Ardah, Mahmoud Ardah, Yaqub Qaderi, and Munadil Nafiyat. Four of the terrorists were recaptured after five days: Zubeidi, Ardah, Ardah, and Qaderi. Kamamji and Nafiyat were arrested in Jenin on Sept. 18, 2021 along with two accomplices. Zubeidi was head of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (Fatah's military wing) in the Jenin area during the PA terror campaign (the second Intifada, 2000-2005), when he oversaw numerous lethal attacks, and he also carried out shooting attacks in 2018-2019. Kamamji participated in the murder of 18-year-old Eliyahu Asheri on June 25, 2006, and planned to blow up a bus using an exploding car. Muhammad Ardah participated in initiating and executing a suicide bombing on bus no. 823 on Nov. 29, 2001, in which 3 people were murdered and many others were wounded. Mahmoud Ardah was involved in numerous attacks; the website of Islamic Jihad’s military wing defined him as the "commander" of the prison escape. Qaderi committed a shooting attack on Sept. 18, 2002 with an accomplice in which Israeli Yosef Ajami was murdered and a foreign worker was wounded. Nafiyat was being held in administrative detention.
