"Israeli soldiers shot and killed an Arab fugitive who failed to obey their orders to halt in an orange grove on the outskirts of Gaza last night. A man fleeing with the fugitive was wounded and captured. The deceased was identified as a former Gaza magistrate, Shauki el-Farah, who was arrested by Israeli authorities on Aug. 9 for allegedly transmitting military information to the El-Fatah terrorist organization. He escaped from prison on Aug. 11 and had been the object of a widespread manhunt." (Jewish Telegraphic Agency Daily News Bulletin, 17/9/68)
This is the wedding without an end.
In a boundless courtyard,
On an endless night.
This is the Palestinian wedding:
Never will lover reach lover
Except as martyr or fugitive.
