“Today [January 8, 2018] marks the first anniversary of Jerusalemite Fadi Ahmad Kunbur, from the town of Jabel Mukaber south of Jerusalem, becoming a martyr. The Occupation continues to detain his body in its freezers .
*A year ago today the martyr Fadi attacked [Israeli] soldiers by running into them at the entrance of Jabel Mukaber, killing four.
*Occupation forces imposed a number of punishments onto his family, carrying out harsh interrogations of family members, revoking Fadi's mother Menwa Kunbur's residency permit, and canceled the family reunification applications  for other family members. They also canceled the healthcare plan for his four children.
*Last March Occupation forces closed off Fadi’s home with concrete.”

0202 Editor’s Notes:
 The attack was carried out in Armon HaNetziv, a neighborhood of Jerusalem which is near the Palestinian town of Jabel Mukaber.

 Family reunification is a legal process in which spouses and families apply for immigration to each other's countries. This is a particularly complicated issue regarding the legal status of East Jerusalemites who hold a blue Israeli ID card and have permanent residency in Jerusalem.
