Jordanian Parliament member Yahya Al-Saud delivered a fiery speech at the Palestinian National Council meeting in Ramallah at the first PNC session in more than two decades.

“I am a slave to whoever teaches me the path of martyrdom,he said, and called Ahmad Jarrar, who gunned down an Israeli citizen in January 2018, a “great martyr.”

Al-Saud, who chairs the Palestine Committee of the Jordanian Parliament, praised the nation whose “children charge into fire, armed with knives, determination and absolute faith in Allah,” and prayed to Allah to “liberate our holy places from the plundering Jews” and “grant us martyrdom on the threshold of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

His speech, which was attended by Palestinian leaders, was broadcast by the official Palestinian Authority TV channel on May 1.
