Mother of terrorist who killed 19 -year-old policewoman: “Praise Allah, he wanted to die as a Martyr and has obtained Martyrdom”

Headline: “Martyr Ahmad Abu Al-Rub…”
This is the third in a series of articles published on Feb. 13, and Feb. 15, 2016

“After the Friday prayer, Ahmad walked to the cemetery to look for the grave of his Martyr (Shahid) friend Ahmad [Awwad Abu Al-Rub], sat by the grave, recited the [Quranic Sura of] Al-Fatiha, and then left.
This is what happened every Friday since the boy Ahmad Awwad Abu Al-Rub died as a Martyr, after being shot by the occupation at the Al-Jalameh checkpoint, when Ahmad Abu Najah Abu Al-Rub’s heart was bound to his friend, and kept anything that reminded him of him [Ahmad Awwad].
Once, Ahmad returned home and asked one of his sisters if it was possible to grow flowers in special soil in order to lay them on his friend’s grave. The flowers were planted, but when they started to blossom, Ahmad was no longer there to take them to the Martyr’s grave, because he had already joined the Martyrs’ procession…
Since the outbreak of the events of the popular resistance at the beginning of last October [2015] (i.e., euphemism for wave of Palestinian terror attacks, September 2015-April 2016), most of Ahmad’s attention was dedicated to following news channels. Ahmad’s mother told Al-Hayat Al-Jadida that her son ‘became indignant at the events and attacks against the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and the death of the young and the girls as Martyrs.’
Indeed the separation is hard, and death is hard, as mother of Martyr [Ahmad Najah Abu Al-Rub] told us, but she corrected [herself] and said: ‘Praise Allah, he wanted to die as a Martyr and has obtained Martyrdom (Shahada)’”

Ahmad Najah Abu Al-Rub, Ahmad Zakarneh and Muhammad Kmeil - Three Palestinian terrorists in their early 20's who shot and stabbed two Israeli police officers at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem on Feb. 3, 2016. One of the officers, 19-year-old Hadar Cohen, was fatally wounded and died of her wounds. The second officer was seriously wounded. The terrorists, who attacked the policewomen after they were asked for identification, were carrying machine guns, knives, and pipe bombs, leading the police to suspect they were planning a mass attack against civilians.
