Fatah glorifies death, encourages violence: “If I fall, take my place, O my comrade in the struggle, Carry my weapon”

The sentence “A fighter avenges his comrade with gunshots and inherits his rifle” refers to the video in the background, which shows a terrorist getting out of a car, shooting, and getting back in. Apparently wounded or dead he falls from the car and a fellow terrorist gets out, takes the fallen terrorist’s rifle and starts shooting as well until he too is hit.

If I fall, take my place, O my comrade in the struggle

Carry my weapon and do not fear my blood dripping from the weapon…

I have not died – I still call to you through the wound

Therefore, carry your weapon, O my comrade, and turn towards the fighting”

[Fatah Movement – Bethlehem Branch, Telegram channel, July 9, 2023]


2023 Operation Home and Garden - an Israeli counter-terror operation in Jenin that lasted from July 3-5, 2023. The operation targeted terror infrastructure in the city, and particularly the Islamic Jihad-affiliated terror group the Jenin Brigade, after 50 terror attacks had originated from the city and 19 terrorists had fled to it since the start of 2023. Israeli soldier David Yehuda Yitzhak, 23, was killed during the operation, while at least 18 Palestinian terrorists were killed and over 300 terror suspects were arrested.

During the operation, Israeli forces attacked a terror headquarters located next to a medical clinic and two schools, one of them belonging to UNRWA. Several weapons factories were discovered containing hundreds of explosives and weapons caches. Terrorists opened fire on Israeli forces from within a mosque in the Jenin refugee camp, and after gaining control of the site, the Israeli forces discovered weapons caches including explosives and entrances to underground tunnels in the mosque's basement.
