Martyr’s sister encourages mother to rejoice over her son “becoming a Martyr” shortly before his wedding

Headline: “A conditional groom”




“In front of the threshold of her old home in Qalqilya sits the mother of Martyr Rabi Rabi (i.e., illegal infiltrator who, while driving together with other infiltrators, attempted to evade a security check at a checkpoint, causing Israeli soldiers to open fire), amid the sighs of the women who came to support her…

The mourning mother sheds tears of pain over her son, whom the occupation put an end to his life as part of its systematic policy of murdering without any consideration and in any situation…
