Haneyya: Return March battle of awareness

Palestine Information Center – April 7, 2018

GAZA – Head of Hamas’s Political Bureau Ismail Haneyya on Saturday said that the Palestinian people are capable of challenging the Israeli occupation even under the most difficult circumstances.

Speaking at the funeral of the Palestinian photojournalist Yaser Murtaja in Gaza, Haneyya said that the Great March of Return represents a battle of awareness to emphasize on national constants, most importantly the right of return.

Haneyya praised the courage of journalist Murtaja who sacrificed his life for the sake of conveying truth to the world.

Murtaja died earlier Saturday after he succumbed to a serious injury he sustained after being deliberately shot in the abdomen by an Israeli sniper while covering peaceful protests near the border fence east of Khuza’a town in the southern Gaza Strip.

Hundreds of Palestinian citizens and dozens of journalists took part in Murtaja’s funeral chanting slogans calling for prosecuting Israel’s leaders over their crimes against the Palestinian people.

  2. My first knowledge that the courageous Mr. Murtaja has lost his precious life to the bastard Zionist horde. May Mr. Yaser Murtaja find a measure of satisfaction and peace in his martyrdom.

    I read in the earlier report of his wounding that MEMO had contracted for his journalistic services. Can’t MEMO sue the bastards who directly and callously caused the death of its employee? I’d gladly contribute to any fund that might be set up/needed to pursue justice for Mr. Murtaja and for humankind….

    I, too, am a Palestinian.
