Earlier this month a Palestinian terrorist attempted to attack an
Israeli checkpoint. Carrying two pipe bombs, he ran towards the
Israeli soldiers, screaming "Allahu Akbar" - "Allah is Greater" - and
was shot and killed before he could detonate the bombs.
Yesterday Palestinian Authority Chairman Abbas granted "the relatives
of the Shahid" $2000:
"The governor of the Jenin district, Kadura Musa, has awarded a
presidential grant to the family of the Shahid (Martyr), Khaldoun
Najib Samoudy, during a visit that took place yesterday in the
village of Al-Yamoun. The governor noted that the grant is financial
aid in the amount of $2000 that the President [Mahmoud Abbas] is
awarding to the relatives of the Shahid, who was recently killed as a
Martyr at the Hamra checkpoint by the Israeli occupation forces."
