Abraham Abu Sureyya, who lost his legs in a 2008 airstrike attack, martyred during protests for Al-Quds in Gaza

Anadula--  "This land is ours, we will not surrender," Palestinian Abraham Abu Sureyya said in his last words on Friday, before he was martyred by the Israeli army.

Two Palestinian youths were martyred by Israeli army gunfire Friday near the blockaded Gaza Strip’s eastern border, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.

Asharaf al-Qudra, a spokesman for Gaza’s Health Ministry said in a statement one of them was 29 year old Abu Sureyya.

Despite loosing both of his legs in a 2008 airstrike attack in Gaza, Abu Sureyya attended the demonstrations in support of Al-Quds every day, eyewitnesses said.

The recent decision of U.S. President Donald Trump to recognize Al-Quds as Israel’s capital is protested across Palestine. During these demonstrations, Israel continues to use real, plastic bullets and tear gas.

In a video revealed by other protesters who attended the demonstrations, Abu Sureyya, who participated in the protests despite his disability, said that he will not give up his land, Palestine.

"I came to give a message to the Israeli army, that this is our land. This land is our land, we will not give it up over Trump’s decision and we will continue with our demonstrations here," he said.

"We are challenging the Israeli army, Palestinian people are brave people," he added.

On Dec. 6, Trump announced his decision to recognize Al-Quds as Israel’s capital and relocate the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

The shift in longstanding U.S. policy on Al-Quds sparked angry demonstrations in the occupied Palestinian territories and many Muslim countries.

Rebuffing the move, an extraordinary Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit in Istanbul this week declared East Al-Quds to be Palestine’s capital.

Al-Quds remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Al-Quds -- now occupied by Israel -- might eventually serve as the capital of a Palestinian state.
