GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — The mother of Islamic Jihad military leader Ahmad al-Sheikh Khalil told Ma’an she was laughing with her son hours before he was killed in an Israeli airstrike on Saturday.

“We have been expecting him to die as a martyr every day except the day he was actually killed, because we were so happy after Palestinian prisoners were released,” his brother Radwan al-Sheikh Khalil told Ma’an.

The Al-Quds Brigades leader was killed with four others when Israeli war planes struck a site used by the group near Rafah on Saturday afternoon.

Airstrikes since Saturday have killed 12 militants and a volley of rocket fire from Gaza killed one Israeli. Islamic Jihad says it is holding to an Egyptian-brokered truce.

The latest flare up came less than two weeks after Gaza celebrated Hamas’ deal for the release of over 1,000 prisoners from Israeli jails in exchange for a captured Israeli soldier.

His mother, Fatima, expressed hope that her fifth son had not died in vain.

“We will, God willing, triumph in the end even if we have to sacrifice our lives, because we are the owners of this land, and the (Israeli) occupiers are the aliens.”

Fatima only has two surviving sons.

“We were laughing and he was telling me secrets” hours before the airstrike, she said.

“That day it never occurred to me that I will not see him again.”

Khalil’s mother expressed anger at Palestinians who aid Israel’s attacks.

“We must eliminate all collaborators, who are more dangerous than the (Israeli) occupiers and the US as they are the ones who spy on our sons and watch their movement.”

Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
