15 years in prison but never stop:
Fifteen years behind the bars did not let the leader of Hamas to forget that he was engaged with "Hana' " before 12 years.
After 15 years of prison , the most important step to do is to get married and have a family to live with. The family of Aruri is preparing the houses to have the wedding tomorrow on Friday after five days of being free.
Saleh Al-Aruri, the Qassam Founder in the West Bank and the Hamas leader, said to France Press Agency " Yes, my marriage to my fiancée and building a family is the most important thing now especially when my fiancée waited me for twelve years"
Happiness is clear on Hanaa's face when she received the congratulations from her neighbors and friends. She said " the day of my fiancé freedom is the best day in my life"
Hundreds gathered to congratulate the "groom" from Fatah and Hamas movements who met him in the prison and outside the prison.
Even the story of engaging Hana' is a story of steadfastness and determination when they are engaged inside the prison after three years of his arrest. The possibility of not being freed is in her mind but Hana' insisted on waiting Saleh even if he will stand for a long time in the prison.
Hana' said " I was ready to wait till the last moment of my life". Saleh confirmed that his arrest is prolonged for eight times in each time he was preparing himself to get out of the prison but the Zionist forces gave him a reply of remaining in the prison.
The Zionist Occupation Forces arrested him in 1992 under the claim of building the resistance branch of Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades. The forces sentenced him for five years in "Kaforyona" prison , which is special for the dangerous persons.
Aruri said " I was arrested by "Israel" and charged of things which is not related to the Work in the military branch"
