TULKAREM, (PIC)–  Hundreds of residents of the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem participated in the funeral of martyr Nash’at al-Karmi, the Qassam commander who was murdered by the IOF at dawn Friday in al-Khalil in the southern West Bank.

The body of  the martyr arrived at the family home in the western part of the city for his family and friends to pay their last respects.

The body was then taken to the old mosque in the city where the funeral prayers were performed, attended by Hamas MPs from Tulkarem and those who could reach Tulkarem from neighbouring towns.

Participants in the funeral chanted support for Hamas and called for retaliation to the crime.

Karmi, 34 years, was one of the youngest deportees of Marj al-Zhour, when the Israeli occupation deported 416 activists affiliated with Hamas and the Islamic Jihad to southern Lebanon in December 1992.

He was detained by the Israeli occupation four times and spent more than seven years in Israeli jails. He was also wanted by the PA security which serves as an agent for the occupation.

He was married to a school teacher from al-Khalil and his wife gave birth to a little baby girl four months ago.


People of Tulkarem bid Karmi farewell.
