The ceremony speakers emphasized the need ‎for the occupation government to release the ‎prisoners and the Martyrs’ bodies that it is ‎holding, in order that they can be buried in a ‎way befitting their heroic battle for Jerusalem ‎and for Palestine’s freedom, and also ‎emphasized that the fact that the occupation ‎authorities continue to hold the Martyrs’ bodies ‎is a crime against humanity. ‎[‎…‎]
Likewise, the speakers emphasized the ‎importance of providing the Martyrs’ and ‎prisoners’ families with a life of dignity, and that ‎our people will continue to stand firm and to ‎defy [Israel] until the end of the occupation, ‎the release of prisoners sitting in the ‎occupation’s prisons, the cessation of ‎settlement, and the establishment of the State of ‎Palestine, with Jerusalem as its capital.”‎
