Sentence: 18 Life sentences

Charges: Membership in Al-Qassam Brigades, weapon training, preparing explosive belts, recruiting members for Al-Qassam Brigades, participating in the planning of the Haifa martyrdom operation executed on 5 March 2003 by Mahmoud El-Qawasma.

 

Childhood & Education:

Fadi was born on 15 January 1982 in the occupied city of Al-Khalil. Abu Ibrahim, Fadi’s father, is a merchant and a father of 7 children, Fadi being the third child in the family. Fadi studied elementary and primary school in Al-Mohammadi’ya school in Al-Khalil. He didn’t finish his schooling; as he was forced to work to provide for himself and his family. Since his childhood, Fadi was known for observance to Islam and frequenting mosques for worship. He performed prayers on time and read the Holy Quran. In addition, he was upset at the occupation’s crimes; and wished to attain martyrdom.

 

Fadi was a good mechanic, who was known for his craftsmanship, dedication, honesty, calmness and intelligence in his work. He was liked by those he interacted with; because they felt that he put their interests ahead of his. He helped others as much as he could; as he was known for hic compassion to others. He attended his parents and was obedient to them and asked their blessing all the time.

 

After years of work as a mechanic, Fadi took computer courses. He started a clerical job in the Polytechnic Institute in Al-Khalil. His colleagues still remember his calm demeanor and secrecy.

 

Arrest:

No one in Fadi’s family envisioned him as a member of Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades, let alone a planner of large martyrdom operations. He was secretive and didn’t talk about his resistance work.

 

On 7 March 2003, a large number of occupation troops stormed El-Jalada neighborhood in the western part of Al-Khalil. Supported with airplanes and undercover units, the occupation troops surrounded the Fadi’s house from all sides, and ordered the inhabitants to come out with their hands over their heads. Each family member was searched thoroughly.

 

When Fadi’s turn came, soldiers started to beat him severely. Then they handcuffed him and tied a piece a cloth around his eyes. They took him to a jeep, where the beating continued. After the arrest, the soldiers ransacked the house and stole some items before departing.

 

Torture:

Fadi was interrogated and tortured for 40 days in Asqalan prison. He was placed in a tiny, dirty cell under solitary confinement for the whole 40 days. He was forced to stand and sit in awkward positions for long hours. His head was always covered and his hands were tied. He was deprived of sleep and was forced to listen to loud music. His cuffs were untied for a few minutes to eat to use the bathroom. Fadi was transferred to the Nafha desert detention center after the 40 days.

 

Sentence:

On 13 February 2005, the Zionist military tribunal in Ofar prison sentenced Fadi for 18 life sentences for his role in the Haifa martyrdom operation on 5 Mar 2003, which resulted in the death of 17 Zionists and injured tens more. The sentence included the charges of preparing explosive belts, membership in Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades, weapons training, and recruiting members for the Brigades.

 

However, Fadi’s morale remains high despite the harsh sentence. He informed the tribunal’s panel that he is one of thousands of resistance fighters marching towards the inevitable freedom. And in prison, Fadi’s strength and belief in his cause remain unwavering.
