Emed Akel also spelled Imad Akel 1965-1993 was a commander of the
Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas. He was
killed at age 28 in a shootout with Israeli forces at a checkpoint
in 1993. In July 2009, Hamas released its first film, a two- hour
biopic celebrating the life and "martyrdom" of Akel. The film was
written by Hamas strongman Mahmoud al-Zahar and the interior
minister, Fathi Hamad. According to his older brother Adel, Emad
was more interested in geography than in politics. He was
reportedly the most academic student in the class at his elementary
school and then assistant to his teacher in preparatory school.
Some of his relatives were arrested, including his cousin Walid and
other more distant relatives were killed by Israeli troops in
firefights. Afterward, he began reading the Quran and supported
Hamas, joining the movement. On September 23, 1988, Emad and his
brother were arrested for their membership with the movement.
