The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine saluted the fallen leader and fighter, Comrade Osama Mahmoud Abbas Abu Omreen on October 10; he was targeted by a Zionist drone for assassination in the recent aggression against the Gaza Strip, killed when the occupation forces shot a missile into his car.
The memorial was organized by the Muin al-Masri Organization of the PFLP, whose name commemorates a comrade and leader killed in the course of struggle for Palestinian liberation. Comrade Zakaria Abu Obeid opened the event, saluting the line of martyrs who have led the Front and the Palestinian struggle on the road of liberation. He also saluted the Palestinian prisoners behind occupation bars, led by PFLP General Secretary Ahmad Sa’adat, who is currently struggling against a ban on family visits imposed on him by the occupation prison authorities.
Comrade Shadi Ahmad spoke about the slain comrade’s commitment to the liberation of every inch of Palestine and to continue the resistance until victory, pledging to remain on his path of struggle. “The massacres in Shujaiya and Khuza’a, Beit Hanoun and Rafah did not achieve their goals in breaking the political will of our people,” he said. He urged political action to strengthen the resistance, and for the Palestinian Authority to immediately accede to the Rome Statute and bring Israeli war criminals before the International Criminal Court without delay.
In a speech on behalf of the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, the armed wing of the PFLP, Comrade Abu Jamal, spokesperson of AAMB, said that the blood of the martyrs will not be shed in vain, and that the enemy will not be allowed to sleep quietly while inflicting terror and violence upon the Palestinian people. He urged untiy of the resistance factions to enhance their efficiency in struggle, and warned against any talk of disarming the resistance, saying that there is no legitimacy higher than the legitimacy of the resistance.
The ceremony included many national songs, including one dedicated to the fallen comrade, and a short film illustrating his participation and leadership in struggle and military action.
