Deputy Chairman of the Commission Abd Al-Mun'im Hamdan Abu Al-Mundhir gave a speech in which he praised the Martyrs and their struggle against the occupation, and he asked Allah to have them dwell [in Paradise] together with the prophets and the righteous. He expressed his appreciation to the Martyrs’ relatives and congratulated them on the deaths as Martyrs of their sons for the sake of the homeland and their people’s freedom.”
Deputy Chairman of the Fatah Commission of Mobilization and Organization Abd Al-Mun'im Hamdan Abu Al-Mundhir: “These three heroes who acted for their principles, goals, and commitments, these three heroes who are always ready for action, these three heroes who gave the criminal occupation a headache – they are our heroes, as are all our Martyrs, prisoners, and wounded. They are the heroes of our people. They are the symbols of our people’s struggle. They are the ones who illuminate the path for our people. We the Palestinian people, the people of determination and will, are determined to continue their path on the path to victory, Allah willing. We will continue on the path of the three Martyrs until victory and until all our people’s goals are achieved…
The criminal occupation has left us with no options. It is pushing us into a corner, and no one will push us into a corner. We all need to be like these [three] young people. We must not stop our struggle. This is the path to victory, and there is no other option.”
