Paramedics are not allowed to save Palestinians injured during clashes in Al-Bireh city - Israeli soldiers are apparently taught the "bleed to death" policy against Palestinians in all occurrences.

Name: Fadi Zeyad El-Fakhouri

Birth date: 7 February 1982

Martyrdom date: 8 March 2003

Hometown: Al-Khalil

Residence: Al-Khalil


Childhood & Education:

Fadi was born in the Kassarah area in Al-Khalil, which is close to the Zionist settlement of Kiryat Arba. These two places will hold an eternal link to Fadi’s life and martyrdom. But that is for the ending to tell. The beginning of this tale of heroism is on 7 February 1982, when Fadi was born in a reputable family.


The boy grew up in the spacious southern West Bank hardened by the mountains and plains of Al-Khalil area. The quiet, polite, shy boy was liked by those who met him. He was a boy raised by a good family and educated in the mosques on how to live a good life under Islam.


Fadi studied till 10th grade in school, and then was forced to drop out to work with his father as an electrician to assist in providing for his family.



Fadi’s childhood was full of the events of the first Intifada (1987-1994). When that Intifada ended, he was 12 years old. But when Al-Aqsa Intifada erupted in 2000, Fadi was ready to enter the battlefield to defend his homeland and resist the occupation. The first steps he took were in popular demonstrations and other general activities.


Then Fadi was recruited by Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades, where he worked in preparing explosive devices. In addition, he became good in using light weapons. As a result, the Palestinian security forces detained him for 3 months. But he was released a few days before the occupation forces attacked Al-Khalil.



Having grown up near the settlement of Kiryat Arba, Fadi was selected to carryout an infiltration operation against that target. In the evening of 8 March 2003, Fadi and Hazem (Al-Qawasmi) geared up and moved to their target. They succeeded in passing through the security perimeter of the settlement and fought an hour-long battle with the guards inside the settlement. Hazem was killed during the battle; and Fadi moved on to where settlers were gathered inside the settlement. He broke into their gathering and detonated his explosives belt.


Settler and occupation internet sources clearly indicated great loses among the guards and settlers. But the official military spokesman claimed that there were no injured after a gun battle of more than an hour and a detonated explosive belt in a crowd of settlers!


Fadi’s and Hazem’s operation was a painful response to the claim that the Palestinian resistance in the West Bank was broken. And it was another harsh reminder to settlers that they’ll never be safe on the land they stole. And it was yet another security failure for the occupation army. 

There is no data now.
