Terrorist's mother tells PA daily she is "proud of what her son, the Martyr, did‎"

     ‎“Thousands of Nablus residents ‎accompanied the body of Martyr (Shahid) ‎Ahmad Hafez Sa‏'‏adat, who died a Martyr ‎at the age of 19 during a self-sacrifice ‎operation (i.e., terror attack) he carried out ‎near the Elon Moreh settlement…‎
The occupation authorities released his ‎remains from the numbered cemeteries ‎‎(i.e., Israeli cemeteries for terrorists and ‎enemy soldiers) after 12 years…‎
The Martyr was transferred on a military ‎vehicle (i.e., received an official military ‎funeral), and after arriving at the old Askar ‎refugee camp, the residents, waving ‎Palestinian flags and flags of the [political] ‎factions and shouting slogans ‎condemning the occupation and ‎supporting the continuation of the ‎resistance, carried the Martyr on their ‎shoulders…‎
The Martyr’s mother told Al-Hayat Al-‎Jadida that she was proud of what her ‎son, the Martyr, did before his Martyrdom. ‎She explained that now she was calm, ‎having received the body of her son. She ‎thanked all those who aided in returning ‎her son to her, even if in a coffin…‎
It should be noted that Ahmad [Hafez ‎Sa‏'‏adat] Abd Al-Jawad died a Martyr ‎during an operation (i.e., terror attack) he ‎carried out in the Elon Moreh settlement ‎near the old Askar refugee camp on ‎March 28, 2002, after a confrontation with ‎the settlement’s security guards.”‎

Notes: ‎Ahmad Hafez Sa‏'‏adat – a terrorist who ‎entered Elon Moreh – a Jewish town north ‎of Nablus – on March 28, 2002, and shot ‎‎4 people to death – David, Rachel and ‎Avraham Gavish and Yitzchak Kanner. ‎Sa‏'‏adat was killed by the town’s defense ‎squad. Hamas took responsibility for the ‎attack. ‎

The Cemeteries for Enemy Casualties are ‎two burial sites maintained by the Israeli ‎army for burying the bodies of enemy ‎soldiers as well as terrorists. They are ‎fenced and well-marked. Graves have ‎markers instead of gravestones. Burial is ‎temporary, on the assumption that the ‎bodies will eventually be returned to their ‎countries of origin. No ceremony is held. ‎The bodies are buried in numbered ‎caskets, after their identities have been ‎documented.‎
