Washington DC – The Center for Policy Analysis on Palestine mourns the death of Faisal Husseini, Palestinian Liberation Organization minister in charge of Jerusalem affairs, who died of a heart attack in Kuwait earlier today.
In the ongoing struggle for Palestinian independence, his was a voice of reason and compassion. His life was a testament to the determination and resilience of the Palestinian people. He worked tirelessly for the right of return and self-determination in Palestine.
