Nabi Saleh, West Bank – Palestinian activist Mustafa Tamimi, 28, died this morning of wounds sustained after the Israeli occupation forces shot him in the face on Friday at the weekly popular protest in Nabi Saleh. Tamimi was shot from less than 10-meters distance with a high velocity tear gas grenade that made him unconscious and bleeding profusely. He was then taken to hospital where he remained in life support until this morning. The Israeli occupation forces prevented his family from accompanying him.
While we remember Hashem as a pillar of Palestinian steadfastness in the Old City of Hebron and an inspiration to Palestinian activists and international solidarity from across the world, we know his spirit and determination will continue to animate the struggle of our people. We, the people that had the honour to know him and the people that share his struggle, will keep his legacy alive and continue on the path towards liberation.
May Hashem rest in peace.
May Hashem rest assured that we continue in the struggle.
