Zalum… even led military squads from outside of the homeland… which constituted great practice in the Palestinian revolutionary activities... He returned [to Palestine] before the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005), and immediately when it broke out he put together the first military squad. He was appointed to be commander and instructor of the Brigades, and he oversaw the implementation of the self-sacrificing operations and operations] against the settlement outposts. On April 22, 2002, the occupation attacked his car in Hebron with three missiles. The determined hero Marwan died as a Martyr with his comrade on the path of struggle Col. Samir Tamimi... Every year Fatah and the homeland hold onto the eternal memory of this Martyr [Zalum]. On the anniversary of your death as a Martyr, we promise Allah and promise you that we will follow the path of pride and struggle and the path of all the Martyrs, until defeating the Zionist enemy and fully liberating the lands of Palestine.”
