Mother of terrorist who shot at Israeli forces celebrates his "death as a Martyr – "the entire world came to his Martyrdom wedding"

Headline: “Ramadan without him”



“Raghad sits for hours before the [Ramadan] fast-breaking meal, holding her phone and looking at recent memories in which her fiancé, Martyr Muhammad Abbas (i.e., terrorist, shot at Israeli soldiers), sat next to her…

Martyr Muhammad Issa Abbas, 26, from the Al-Amari refugee camp, died as a Martyr on the morning of Dec. 22, [2021,] after occupation forces fired at him in his car next to the entrance to the refugee camp (sic., they returned fire after he shot at them). Minutes earlier, Muhammad had been together with his fiancée Raghad Al-Lulu, 21, and brought her to her home. They had completed the preparations for their wedding, which they planned together, but the occupation’s bullets snatched away the dream…

The Israeli criminal bullets did not let Martyr Muhammad Abbas enjoy the month of Ramadan together with his family over recent years. He was arrested four times in that period and was released most recently in December 2020.

His mother Siham told [the official PA daily] Al-Hayat Al-Jadida: ‘Muhammad was in the occupation’s prison for 4 years. Every Ramadan he would call us… and speak with us from prison.’

Regarding his presence in the month of Ramadan, she said: ‘He was always joking and spontaneous in his relations with the family, with me and with his brother.’ She painfully recalls the situation with his brother and says: ‘He sat with his brother and told him that his wedding would be special, and that he wants the entire world to come to the wedding. Here, he died as a Martyr and the entire world came to his Martyrdom wedding (i.e., Martyr's funeral is considered wedding to the 72 Virgins in Paradise in Islam).’”
