Released terrorist vows to “defend our homeland… our honor… our Al-Aqsa Mosque, even if it costs us our lives”

[Official PA TV, July 6, 2022]

Released terrorist prisoner Hani Ghannam: “We must be one hand and stand against this occupation, defend our homeland, defend our honor, defend our Al-Aqsa Mosque, even if it costs us our lives. I don’t say this because my nephew is a Martyr, [rather] I raise my head thanks to my Martyr nephew. My sister was a Martyr before him in the first Intifada. I raise my head thanks to her. My grandfather was a Martyr before her in 1948. I raise my head thanks to him. I salute them and hope to be like them and join them. That is our condition and that is our fate as a Palestinian people.”
