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.

Childhood and Education

He was born in Gaza in 1968. He was married with five children. Awad finished his primary and preparatory schools from Gaza. He finished his secondary school certificate while detained in PA jails and enrolled in the Islamic University of Gaza. Despite his hard duties as a mujahid, Awad never forgot his family affairs.


On the road of jihad

Awad was a member of the first generation of Al-Qassam Brigades in the early 1990’s. He conducted many operations against occupation forces and was put on their most-wanted list in 1993. He continued resistance activity against the occupation despite the dangerous pursuit by occupation forces. The most memorable operation he carried out was the one done in retaliation to the martyrdom of Imad Aqel. During the operation, Colonel Meir Mintz (leader of the occupation’s undercover units in Gaza) was killed along side other soldiers. In addition, Awad was responsible an operation that resulted in the death of two occupation officers in Thalathini street in Gaza. And he took part in the operation that killed three occupation soldiers east of Gaza in 1993.



In 1996, he was arrested by the PA for four years. He only attained his freedom at the beginning of Al-Aqsa Intifada when occupation forces started bombarding Palestinian jails.



His wife said, “In Ramadan, he awoke all the night praying. And after Al-fajer (dawn prayer), he took what was to be the final look at his five children and went out of the house."


Awad went on to carry another mission against the occupation. The mission was to plant a roadside bomb near a road frequented by occupation patrols on the eastern outskirts of Gaza. A mysterious explosion occurred as he finished planting to bomb. Some said it was an assassination and some other said that he was trying a new type of bombs and martyred while planting it.

There is no data now.
