PA daily prints PA Minister’s last words: ‎‎“The entire land is Palestinian land”‎

Headline: “We will continue to resist – the ‎final words of Martyr (Shahid) [Ziad] Abu ‎Ein”‎
[Ziad Abu Ein said:] They attacked me ‎and beat me. Yet this fascist occupation ‎will leave, and the Palestinian people will ‎triumph. This occupation will not defeat ‎us. All these attacks and confiscations [of ‎land] are illegal. The destiny of our people ‎is to resist this occupation and its actions. ‎We will continue to resist, and the entire ‎land is Palestinian land.”‎

Note: Ziad Abu Ein - Fatah Revolutionary Council member and head of the PA Committee to Resist Settlements and the Wall. Abu Ein died on Dec. 10, 2014 at ‎a demonstration in the West Bank that ‎turned violent. Immediately following his ‎death, PA and Fatah leaders claimed that ‎Abu Ein was murdered. Footage from the ‎event shows Abu Ein in an altercation with ‎an Israeli soldier who grabbed Abu Ein by ‎the neck, and later shows Abu Ein on the ground clutching his chest in pain. The ‎autopsy, which was overseen by Israeli and ‎Palestinian pathologists, revealed that the ‎cause of death was a heart attack, but ‎disagreement remains over the extent to which the altercation with Israeli forces may have caused ‎the heart attack. Palestinians have ‎continued to describe Abu Ein's death as a ‎‎"murder" and "assassination" by Israel.‎
