     “The Fatah movement and dignitaries and institutions from the Aida refugee camp held a central rally to celebrate the release of the district’s veteran prisoners Khaled Al-Azraq, Issa Abd Rabbo, Rizq Salah and Khaled Asakra. Singer Qassem Al-Najjar performed, and official and popular figures attended. In the beginning of the celebration, which was moderated by Muhammad Lutfi Da’amseh, the national Palestinian anthem was played, then [the crowd] stood for a moment of silence for the Martyrs’ (Shahids) souls.
