Tattoo reads Resistance in Arabic.

On 14th April he was kidnapped, held hostage and threatened with execution for the following day by a small Salafist Jihadists group if Hamas doesn’t answer their demands of releasing their Salafist leader whom Hamas arrested last month. However, the group didn’t wait for the deadline they had given and had murdered him within hours, (as far as I know at the moment it’s a suspected hanging as cause of death). May I add, Vittorio’s heart was more Palestinian than his killers. His killer’s do not represent Palestinians.

Mourners gathered in Gaza and the West Bank to pay their respects to a courageous, pure hearted, dedicated humanitarian. He will be remembered forever for his work by all. My sincere condolences go out to his family, friends and to all those he touched, a true definition of a hero, a fallen hero. May God bless his soul and Rest In Peace.
