Parents of terrorist: "My son is an offering to the Al-Aqsa [Mosque], congratulations to him on the Martyrdom-death… My son is a groom"

“Residents of the village of Yatta accompanied the Martyr (Shahid) Amjad Hatem Al-Jundi on his last journey.
The Martyr’s father said: ‘My son left for work in the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel). He said goodbye to me and his mother, like always, and asked us to be pleased with him. Later in the day, residents of Yatta began to come to our home, and I had no idea that there is a Martyr. Later I learned from the neighbors that my son died as a Martyr.’
The father, who parted with his son today, said: ‘It is not a loss when you are talking about Palestine or the homeland. My son is an offering to the Al-Aqsa [Mosque], congratulations to him on the Martyrdom-death (Shahada).’ Amjad’s mother sat among the women who came to the Martyr’s home in order to see him one last time, making cries of joy and blessing herself: ‘My son is a groom, congratulations.’”
