Father of 24-year-old terrorist “Martyr” calls on “all our armed young people”: “Take revenge for every Martyr… your potential is to die as Martyrs”

Father of terrorist Bara Lahlouh: [Bara Lahlouh’s] anger grew when one of his friends died as a Martyr. He chose this path. He told me: “Dad, that’s it, I have chosen my path: the path of dying as a Martyr.’ I told him: ‘Son, whatever you want.” Allah gives and Allah takes. Allah gave him to me and took him. I’m not sorry, he is a Martyr, a Martyr of the nation, a Martyr of Palestine. I am proud, praised be Allah, the Master of the Universe compensated me with other [children]… In the end we are all potential Martyrs… I say to all our armed young people: “You are the ones who remain, take revenge for every Martyr, because your potential is to die as Martyrs... Quickly take revenge for these Martyrs who were killed in cold blood.”
