For more than seven  years, Ammar did not see his wife and children. In 2005 ,  that was the first visit to his wife and children after seven years of unknown fate. Ammar was born in 1976 and  married and  has two girls.

 

Jihad life :

 Ammar played an important role in resisting the occupation forces, at a time when most people were disenchanted with the occupation’s false promises of peace. Before his arrest, Ammar worked with Mohannad El-Taher, Ayman Halawa, and Mahmoud Abu Hannood.  This was the group of Al-Qassam leaders who carried the burden of maintaining the resistance before Al-Aqsa Intifada, and escalated the resistance during the first 2 years of the Intifada.

 

In 1997, five martyrdom operations resulted 27 Israelis killed and 300 injured as a reaction against the Zionist daily arrest and  crimes against the Palestinian people. The operations were also a price paid by the occupation for the imprisonment of thousands of Palestinians in occupation jails.  Ammar was in the operation room that oversaw the operations.

 

Arrests

Ammar was arrested three times . The  first arrest was in 1992 when Ammar was imprisoned for two and a half years. He was 16 at the time of his arrest. In 1994, he was arrested another time because of statements he made against the occupation during his brother’s funeral. The final arrest was in 1998, in which he was sentenced 27 life sentence in addition to 25 years.

 

He was charged of participating in five operations in Jeruslem.  He was charged also of being the head of some Al-Qassam Units to release the Palestinian prisoners inside the Zionist Jails.

 

Martyrdom of his Mother

 After the martyrdom of her eldest son and imprisonment of Ammar, Aysha Muhammad Al-Zeben declared a hunger strike to protest the situation of Palestinian prisoners. She  died as a result for the cause of the prisoners. The agony was great when Ammar heard the news of his mother’s martyrdom and could not see her.
