Official PA daily glorifies Hamas terrorists who launched rockets in Gaza 2014 conflict

‎ “In the past, each home had two Martyrs ‎‎(Shahids)… while today, these two ‎families [Al-Jaraba and Sleim ‎] insisted ‎on sacrificing more of their sons as ‎Martyrs for Palestine and [the] wounded ‎Al-Aqsa [Mosque], as if they were in an ‎honor competition or a marathon of giving ‎and sacrifice; and the new seedling was ‎planted in the granary of Martyrdom ‎‎(Shahada)…‎
According to local sources, resistance ‎members Marwan (sic, should be Mazen) ‎Al-Jaraba and Mazen (sic, should be ‎Marwan) Sleim were about to fire two ‎rockets, when a missile from an ‎occupation plane struck them, leading to ‎their deaths as Martyrs and turning their ‎bodies into lumps of flesh.”‎
