Posted text: “From the speech of Fatah Movement Deputy Chairman Mahmoud Al-Aloul ‘Abu Jihad’ at the house of consolation of the Nablus Martyrs (refers to three assassinated Fatah terrorists who were planning an imminent shooting attack; see note below -Ed.): ‘The entire Palestinian people from every inch of the beloved land of Palestine, from the north to the south, felt this great and unusual pain that struck us as a result of the ascent [to Heaven] of these heroic young people as Martyrs among their Lord. No one left us any option, other than their option, the option of resistance and the option of the Martyrs, [the option] to act against these ongoing crimes against our sons and to act against the daily attacks against the land, the trees, the stones, and the holy sites – these crimes that cannot be passed over in silence.

The last picture of the heroes was of them carrying the picture of hero Nasser Abu Hmeid (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 7).

We have no option other than the option of the Martyrs, the option of resistance, and we call it the option of Adham [Mabrouka], Ashraf [Mubaslat], and Muhammad [Al-Dakhil] (i.e., the three Fatah terrorists).

The reality that we are living in today that strikes us and our rights must end. O Martyrs, your absence leaves a deep wound in us, but the entire people is proud of you, your position, and your heroism. And because you died for the sake of the homeland, you will doubtlessly be alongside the prophets, the Martyrs, and the righteous [in Paradise].’




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.
