This young Martyr is a Martyr of Palestine, a Martyr of Tubas… All respect goes to him, and as Allah said: ‘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]… All respect goes to the Martyr’s family and all respect goes to all the people of Tubas... They are prepared to give for this revolution… With Allah’s help the Palestinian struggle will continue with its various forms until reaching the main and central goal, which is liberating the Palestinian homeland and establishing a Palestinian state whose capital is Jerusalem.”
