Umm Iyad Al-Ashqar, the mother and aunt of two Palestinian “martyrs,” said in an October 28, 2019 interview on Al-Quds Al-Youm (Palestine – Islamic Jihad) that if every Palestinian mother was selfish with regard to sacrificing her children for the sake of Jihad and Allah, then there would be nobody to fulfill the duty of defending Jerusalem. She said that all Palestinian mothers should urge their sons to wage Jihad and added: “Death is inevitable, so why not die as martyrs? I salute every mother of a martyr who urged her children to wage Jihad [and] bade her son farewell with ululations.”
