الشهيد بإذن الله / سالم صالح فياض .
الذي ارتقى صباح اليوم في قصف غاشم على منزلة الكائن في دير البلح منطقة ال فياض بجوار موقع ال 17 المعروف ” البحرية “
The martyr, God willing, Salem Salih Fayad.
Who rose this morning in a brutal bombing of his house, in Deir Al-Balah, in the Al Fayad area, next to the 17th location known as the “Navy”
Saleh Salem Fayyad was passing intelligence information to his terror organization from his house. He was targeted in his home by three missiles and killed.
His house was located next to an area, the 17th location, known as the “Navy”.
He did not die because an agricultural building adjacent to his house was bombed. He died when HIS house was targeted by three missiles, he was passing intelligence information to the monitoring unit of the al-Qassam Brigades. The 17th location next to his house, known as the “Navy”, was not an agricultural building.

When describing the deaths of Palestinian terror operative combatants, the B’Tselem databases commonly utilize words or phrases that evoke images of pastoral settings. This is accomplished by the use of tropes, such as:
●Killed on agricultural land
●Killed in an agricultural area
●Killed on farmland
●Killed in an agricultural field
●Killed in an agricultural shed
B’TSELEM’S USE OF THE TROPE
A trope is a theme or plot element used many times, it creates recurrent images that influence an audience’s senses helping a writer achieve a desired effect. The meaning of the text is not literal, it is figurative.
B’TSELEM’S USE OF THE TROPE, “KILLED ON FARMLAND, AGRICULTURAL AREA, AGRICULTURAL FIELD, IN AN AGRICULTURAL SHED, AGRICULTURAL BUILDING BOMBED”, ETC
Phrases referencing agriculture are common tropes used by the B’Tselem databases, they are literally not true. They are figurative themes or plot elements used many times throughout their databases. The metaphorical use of these expressions achieves the following effect: It adds the element of victimization to the narrative, it implies that the Palestinian terror operative died as a result of an attack on agricultural infrastructure.
In addition, by employing these tropes, B’Tselem creates an issue of moral legitimacy, that Israel does not adhere to conventionally accepted standards of conduct. Killing Palestinians when agricultural assets are attacked raises the issue of international war crimes.
The narrative that employs these tropes simply contains a figurative expression to account for the death of the Palestinian combatant. The trope does what it is suppose to do, achieve a desired effect and influence the reader’s senses
The B’Tselem databases create the illusion that Palestinian combatants killed by the Israeli security apparatus are victims, victims of an “occupier“. The Saleh Salem Fayyad narrative is an example of this misinformation.
Saleh Salem Fayyad, B’Tselem alleges, was killed at home when an agricultural building on adjacent land was bombed. The B’Tselem narrative creates the illusion that this terror operative combatant was collateral damage, an innocent victim, killed in an attack on agricultural property adjacent to his home.
The B’Tselem narrative above is PATENTLY FALSE.
There was no agricultural building on adjacent land , see the Facebook post. His house was “next to the 17th location known as the “Navy‘”.
A structure on adjacent land was not “bombed“, Fayyad’s house was “bombed“. It was targeted and hit by three air to ground missiles.
When Fayyad’s house was targeted, he was communicating with the al-Qassam Brigades “Monitoring Unit”, passing military intelligence information relative to the movement of Israeli military assets.
The B’Tselem narrative conceals all material facts relative to the combat death of Saleh Salem Fayyad. The false narrative, in effect, has defined Fayyad as a victim of an attack on adjacent agricultural land.
Saleh Salem Fayyad, the terror operative combatant, re-imagined by B’Tselem as the victim.
While the B’Tselem databases have re-imagined Palestinian terror operative combatants as victims, the U.S. Department of Justice has identified who the truthful victims were, they closed down a Hamas fundraising scheme and will redirect the Hamas assets to the factual victims, the victims of their terrorism. The event documented below occurred in August 2020:
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE SEIZURE
The original Humanize Palestine website memorialized Hamas and al-Qassam Brigades terror operatives, and B’Tselem represented them as victims, Saleh Salem Fayyad is one example.
Now the real victims have been identified. The U.S. Department of Justice has seized al-Qassam Brigades assets, funds and websites, used to finance their terror campaigns. The monies will be directed to the United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Fund.
