Text on image: “On behalf of All Merciful Allah
‘And never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provision’ [Quran 3:169, Sahih International translation]
With full honor and pride, the Fatah Movement’s Ramallah and El-Bireh branch – Al-Asifa sub-branch / Ras Karkar region announces the passing of its heroic Martyr son Khaled Maher Nawfal, who was shot and killed by the settlers on the land of Jabal Al-Risan in the village of Ras Karkar.
Our souls are for the sake of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
Khaled Maher Nawfal – Palestinian terrorist and PA Ministry of Finance clerk who drove to Sde Efraim farm, northwest of Ramallah, in the middle of the night on Feb. 5, 2021, where he proceeded to try to break into the house of one of the farmworkers while shouting “Allahu Akbar” (“Allah is greatest”). Nawfal then ran at a farm guard and began physically assaulting him before other guards shot and killed him.
Yasser Arafat – Founder of Fatah and former chairman of the PLO and PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.
