Families of two killed terrorist stabbers want to marry them to each other

Headline: “This is the Palestinian wedding: the family of Martyr Jaradat requests the hand of Martyr Arshid”
     “In a precedent, the family of Martyr (Shahid) Jaradat requested Martyr Dania Arshid’s hand of her father for their son Raed – a sight that caused those present to shed tears. The video, distributed over social media, highlighted a rare and unusual scene, in which pride is mixed with sadness, tears with blood, and condolences with blessings… During the funeral procession of Martyr Jaradat in the village of Sa’ir, the family asked her father, who was present, for the hand of Martyr Arshid in a direct and surprising way. In the video, the moment when Martyr Dania Arshid’s father warmly embraced Martyr Jaradat’s father is seen, thus showing that he agreed to the request. Likewise, [the video] showed the sad moments, and the feelings of grief that hung over the place due to the separation from the two Martyrs, who were killed by the Israeli occupation’s gunfire a few days ago in Hebron, in the south of the occupied West Bank.  This is the first case in the history of the Palestinian cause. It is unusual, and it is a new method of struggle and resolve. It will be noted that hours before he died as a Martyr, Jaradat posted a picture of Martyr Dania who was executed in cold blood by the occupation next to the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron, and commented on it: ‘Imagine that she was your sister.’ Afterward he avenged her, and severely injured an Israeli soldier.”

Raed Jaradat – a 22-year-old Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and critically wounded an Israeli soldier at the Beit Anoun junction near Hebron on Oct. 26, 2015. Jaradat was shot and killed at the scene.

Dania Arshid – 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist who when asked to identify herself at a military checkpoint near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Oct. 25, 2015, refused and ran towards the Israeli border policemen with a drawn knife. She was shot and killed by them.
