(English caption)

Khalil al Wazir (Abu Jihad)

Born in Ramleh, Palestine, 1935

Killed by Israeli agents in his home in Tunis during the night of April 15, 1988

Arabic translation of song:


If I should fall riddled with bullet wounds,

And my blood should run out and my gun not be near

If my body should ever be prey to hovering vultures,

Brother, this is the road I have taken,

You continue the struggle
