Father of terrorist who murdered 3 people at a bar in Tel Aviv "expressed pride in my son who raised the flag and sacrificed for the sake of Palestine"

Headline: “A colonel in the PA, the occupation demanded that the father of Martyr Ra’ad turn himself in and this is how he responded to them”



“Fathi Hazem, the father of Martyr Ra’ad [Hazem] (i.e., terrorist, murdered 3 people), who carried out the Tel Aviv operation that took place yesterday evening [April 7, 2022] and caused the deaths of two and the wounding of 14 including four in serious condition (one victim later died of his wounds -Ed.), gave a speech in front of his home in Jenin.

Fathi Hazem said: ‘You will see the victory in your generation and in your era, in the coming years and the coming days. Your eyes will see the change and you will achieve your freedom, your independence, and victory, Allah willing.’ …

He expressed his pride in Ra’adwho raised the flag and sacrificed for the sake of Palestine, which is worthy of full sacrifice, and he ridiculed the occupation’s threats to impose punishments on our people and to cancel the alleged easements [for Ramadan]. He said: ‘My son did not sacrifice his soul as a Martyr for the easements, and he, like our people, wants freedom and independence. Our people wants the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to pray in its plazas, it wants freedom for its children and livelihood in dignity, not permits soaked in humiliation.’

The Martyr’s father called for unity and a tightening of the ranks, and said to those gathered: ‘I say to them that they will see the liberation, and what I see today is that the Jenin refugee camp is the spearhead of Palestine, it is the spearhead of the entire nation.’ He called for patience, discretion, and resolve in carrying out this responsibility until the promise of Allah, who heralded to the believers about Paradise, is realized…

Hundreds of Jenin refugee camp residents came to the family home of the Martyr in a mass procession, while the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (i.e., Fatah’s military wing) eulogized Martyr Ra’ad and said that he is one of its members…

Fatah Movement Jenin [Branch] Secretary Ata Abu Armila gave a speech in which he eulogized Martyr Ra’ad, and he said that he carried out the operation in response to the occupation’s crimes and its attacks and those of its settler herds against the Al-Aqsa Mosque and everywhere in Palestine.
