The Islamic Resistance Movement - Hamas expresses its deepest condolences on the death of Dr. Anton Sheheiber (Abu Amjad) at the age of 84, a solid national stature and one of the leading figures of medicine in Palestine.
Dr. Anton passed away while defending the rights of his people and fighting for the freedom of his homeland until the last moment of his life. Dr. Anton’s life was a record full of great milestones in defending his homeland and serving his people under a fierce racist occupation, as well as in his constant defense of our diversified social mix.
He was proud in many forums, at home and abroad, of his Christian religion and of his Arab affiliation, civilization, and Islamic culture. With pride, we will always remember Dr. Anton and his fragrant national biography.
We send our heartfelt condolences to Dr. Anton's family, his relatives, and to our Palestinian people at home and in the diaspora.
