16/04/14: Activists tell the Occupation “Abu Jihad is not forgotten”

On the 26th anniversary of the murder of Abu Jihad, activists issued more eviction notices to criminal settlers with the message that Abu Jihad is not forgotten and they will bring his body back to be buried on his land in Al-Ramla. Activists issued the notices in English and Hebrew, which also stated that the settlers should leave Palestinian lands, and left them at the entrances to several illegal settlements, settler Apartheid transport stops and at Huwwara checkpoint, just south of Nablus.

They also declared that Israel is a terror State, as they remembered, on the eve of his murder, Bassem Abu Rahme killed while peacefully demonstrating against the Apartheid Wall and illegal settlements that surround his village of Bilin. Bassem was killed by a direct shot to the chest with a high velocity tear gas canister on 17 April 2009. Despite video footage of the criminal act, terror State Israel did not prosecute any soldiers for his murder.

Khalil Ibrahim al-Wazir, or Abu Jihad as he was more commonly known, along with Yasser Arafat, was one of the founders of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) and Fatah party. He was born in Al-Ramla and was a refugee after being forcefully expelled during the Nakba in 1948, when Jewish forces declared the State of Israel. He was assassinated by Mossad agents (Israeli external secret service) while in his home in exile in Tunis on 16 April 1988.

Apartheid Israel continues to use assassinations as a terror tool, an example of yet another war crime committed by the Apartheid State. Abu Jihad was buried in the Yarmouk refugee camp, still awaiting his lawful right to return to his homeland. Today activists, 26 years after his murder, affirmed that like the refugees they would ensure Abu Jihad came home to Palestine and there is justice for all the martyrs of the struggle for freedom.
