In a basketball game between Qalandia refugee camp and Sarayat Ramallah in the Premier [Palestinian] Basketball League, the Qalandia camp side raised a banner with the departed athlete martyrs from Qalandia, who left their mark in lifting the morale of the camp.

Among them was the artistic director of the basketball team, Muhammad Mutair "Abu Rabi'", martyr basketball player Nahed Mutair, the person responsible for the team's media coverage, the martyr of truth, Muhammad Manasarah, soccer player Issa Asaf, and the boxing champion Mustafa Aslan.

The banner was raised with warm applause from the audience, stressing that indeed the recollection of the martyrs still remains in the hearts of the audience and members of the team, which is considered the fourth best in the country."
