On behalf of Palestine from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River; on behalf of the Martyrs, the prisoners, and the sacrifices they have made; on behalf of Jeningrad (apparently a comparison between the Battle of Stalingrad in World War II and the 2002 Jenin battle; see note below -Ed.); on behalf of the Fatah Movement’s Jenin branch and its Shabiba [Youth Movement], we announce the death of the Martyrs of the homeland and the duty, the resistance members who ascended to Heaven today following a cowardly assassination operation that was carried out by the Zionist units of treachery and hatred.

Therefore, we declare general mourning tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2022, and a general strike in all spheres of life out of respect for the souls of our pure-hearted Martyrs, whose blood watered the land of our beloved homeland.

We also invite you to participate in the procession of rage that will pass through the streets of Jenin.

[It will] convene in Cinema Square precisely at 11:00 a.m.”

 

 

Adham Mabrouka Al-Shishani, Muhammad Al-Dakhil, and Ashraf Mubaslat – Palestinian terrorists and members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military wing) who were shot and killed by Israeli security forces in Nablus on Feb. 8, 2022. When killed the terrorists were armed with two M-16 semi-automatic assault rifles and intelligence indicated that they were planning an imminent terror attack. The terrorists had already committed six shooting attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers in previous weeks, among them: Jan. 25, 2022 - shooting on an Israeli military post near Nablus. Jan. 27, 2022 - shooting on a military post between the Israeli towns of Elon Moreh and Itamar east of Nablus. Jan. 29, 2022 - shooting on an Israeli military vehicle as it drove next to the PA village of Tell southwest of Nablus. Feb. 2, 2022 - shooting on a military post at an entrance to Nablus. PMW was unable to determine the details of the remaining two attacks, which reportedly targeted Israeli towns.

Jenin – refugee camp north of Nablus that was a major hotbed of terrorism in the PA terror campaign 2000-2005 (the second Intifada). To reduce the attacks, Israeli forces entered Jenin on April 3, 2002, to conduct searches as part of Operation Defensive Shield, which was carried out to destroy the terror infrastructure in the West Bank, and several days of intense fighting against Palestinian terrorists in booby-trapped houses ensued. While the PA claimed that the Israeli forces committed a “massacre” and killed hundreds of civilians, a UN report refuted these claims, confirming that 52 Palestinians were killed in the battle of which the majority were terrorists. 23 Israeli soldiers were also killed in the fighting.
