An 18-year-old "always said: 'I want to die as a Martyr.'”

Mutaz Alawneh, brother of terrorist Kamel Alawneh: “Our brother Kamel was studying for the matriculation exams... He had of firm character and was cheerful. He always mentioned his brother Martyr Kamel (i.e., would-be suicide bomber), whom he didn’t know because he was born after him. He heard about his demeanor from people, about his good and praiseworthy behavior. He always tried to imitate his brother the Martyr, and always said: “I want to die as a Martyr.” He asked God for this. Allah willing, He will receive him as one of the Martyrs and the righteous.”
