July 7, 2017 3:44 P.M. (Updated: July 7, 2017 4:02 P.M.)
TUBAS (Ma’an) -- The governor of the northern occupied West Bank district of Tubas Rabih Khandaqji died on Friday after struggling with a terminal illness for many months, Palestinian officials announced.

Khandaqji was appointed as Tubas’ governor in September 2013 by a presidential order after he served as the governor of the Qalqilya district.

The Fatah movement released a statement expressing condolences for Khandaqji’s family and loved ones, and also expressed appreciation for his national service.

The statement honored Khandaqji for living his life in dedication to the Palestinian people and for always “raising the (Palestinian) homeland’s flag high.”

The Palestinian Authority also offered its condolences in a statement, saying that "Palestine has lost a national leader who was well known for his firm stance in confronting all challenges facing the Palestinian people."
