The Palestinian resistance is establishing a new stage.. They are taking the lead Featured

Two weeks after being chased by the Zionists, the Palestinian youth who fired at the Shuafat checkpoint, Uday At-Tamimi, was martyred, last Wednesday, after an armed clash he carried out against the guards of the “Ma’ale Adumim” settlement, east of the occupied Jerusalem.

Activists circulated a video clip showing the exceptional bravery of At-Tamimi as he engaged in a pistol clash with the occupation soldiers and the security guards of the settlement.

This operation provoked wide reactions, and the name of the martyr "Uday At-Tamimi" topped the social media platforms, amid the great celebration of this operation, which resulted in the injury of many settlers.

Historical Operation

The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), for its part, mourned, "Its martyr, the chased hero, Uday Kamal al-Tamimi, from the town of Anata in Jerusalem." to the Palestinian people and the Arab and Islamic nation.

Hamas said: "This new operation, and the heroism of At-Tamimi, and his insistence on resisting the occupation, fixes the pillars of our people's revolution against the criminal occupation. It sends a message of defiance to the occupation from the heart of Jerusalem, warns the occupation state of dark days in which its soldiers, guards of the settlements, and herds in our pure areas will be targeted, and turns its tyranny and arrogance into a farce by the hands of our heroic resisters."

Hamas added "The men of Jerusalem who write the epics of glory and set an exemplary example in confronting the occupier despite its advanced security system and military measures, are fighting for the sake of Al-Aqsa Mosque. They are the ones, who affirm its sanctity and affirm the right of our people in Al-Aqsa Mosque, as a mosque purely for Muslims and the occupation has no right in it forever."

The political analyst Yasser Az-Zaatrah wrote on Twitter: "A wonderful victory scored by the hero Uday Al-Tamimi (the hero of the Shuafat checkpoint operation)."

Az-Zaatrah added, “It is the starting scene of the hero Uday At-Tamimi who fought his enemy until the last bullet; not caring about the volley of shots penetrating his body.”

He continued, "This is the beginning, because the martyrs are alive in heaven with their Lord, receiving provision."

The Secretary-General of the Jordanian Islamic Action Front Party, Murad Al-Adayleh, said: I could not bear to see the video. This brave man gets injured, then gets up and shoots, then gets injured and then shoots, adding: His martyrdom pained me... This young man is the promise of God and his Quran.

In his comment, Al-Adilah cited a Prophet’s hadith, “A man asked the prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him), Which martyrs are the best? He said: "Those who face people in the first row and do not turn their faces until they are killed, those who are wallowing in the high paradise rooms,   your Lord laughs to them, and if your Lord laughs to a slave in this life, He won't be held accountable on doomsday.

The writer Ahmed bin Saeed said, wrote via his Twitter account: “This clip in which Uday At-Tamimi is fighting the occupiers until the martyrdom, reminded me of Hollywood myths and movies.

“The valiant hero got off,” with this phrase, the Palestinian activist Muhammad al-Madhoun began his talk, describing At-Tamimi’s operation as a “historic scene.”

Al-Madhoun wrote on Twitter, "Write in his biography that this heroic guerrilla Uday At-Tamimi (21 years), son of Al-Quds, carried out a heroic operation. He disappeared from the occupation, dazed and perplexed them for ten days.  Then he appeared and carried out a second operation in which he clashed alone with the occupation until the last bullet, until the last breath, and then he rose as a "Toil! Never recoil!" martyr.”

Radwan al-Akhras pointed out on Twitter that the "Israeli" security and military services experienced ten days of failure during which the spy planes, helicopters and numbers of soldiers, officers and dogs mobilized to find one Palestinian young man named Uday At-Tamimi after carrying out the Shuafat operation. Nevertheless, he took the initiative to go out to them and bypassed their fortifications to confront them in a historic clash. 

Journalist Turki Al-Shalhoub said: Uday Al-Tamimi is a new icon of the Palestinian steadfastness that has not and will not end, and another proof that these people will abandon neither their land nor our Aqsa.

Al-Shalhoub added: “Those who insist on death as some insist on life. Those are the ones who chart the path to victory, and those about whom Allah Almighty said: (Of the believers are men who are true to that which they covenanted with Allah. Some of them have paid their vow by death (in battle), and some of them still are waiting, and they have not altered in the least; (23). AL-AHZAB.

Al-Jazeera journalist Ahmed Mansour also wrote: After the occupation army failed for 10 days with all its capabilities to arrest him, The lion came out of his den, Uday At-Tamimi, to confront the occupation soldiers. He faced them with extreme courage and continued to fight "Toil! Never recoil! "in a rare heroism published by "the Israelis" to confirm his death. Nevertheless, its publication came as a confirmation and honour for his heroism, which will be immortalized in history forever.  

The former Kuwaiti parliamentarian Nasser Ad-Dawela wrote: May God have mercy on Uday At-Tamimi, and we ask Allah to place him in the highest paradise, he and his companions, who raised their weapons in the face of the occupying enemy, so they fell like glowing stars that illuminate the sky of glory and history.

 Dakheel Al-Khalifa wrote on Twitter, “This is exclusive prowess for the Palestinian people that no other people can own”  

After the operation, large crowds of Palestinians went to the house of the martyr Uday at-Tamimi, and the West Bank rose, in support and appreciation of the heroic martyr Uday at-Tamimi. While the national action factions in Nablus and Tulkarm (in the northern West Bank), called for a comprehensive strike in the West Bank and Jerusalem, on Thursday 20th Oct. 2022, as part of revolutionary activities in honour of the martyr.

On October 8, the martyr Uday At-Tamimi carried out a shooting attack at the Shuafat checkpoint in the occupied city of Jerusalem, which resulted in the killing of a Zionist soldier and the injury of others.

Martyr Uday At-Tamimi wrote a will after carrying out his first operation at Shuafat Checkpoint, in which he said: "My operation at Shuafat Checkpoint was a drop in the roaring sea of struggle. I know that I will be martyred eventually. I know that I would not liberate Palestine with the operation, but I carried it out with a goal in front of me, which is that the fruit of the operation is that hundreds of young people will take up the gun following my example.
