The Fall of Al Hissan

The Jenin Horse (Al-Hissan), was a sculpture built in 2003 by the population of Jenin, in the West Bank, along with German artist Thomas Kilpper. It was made from scrap metal and pieces of wrecked cars and ambulances. The sculpture was considered as one of the landmarks of Jenin, but was destroyed by IOF (Israeli occupational forces) during invasion of the city on 29/12/23. 

In Jenin's embrace, Al-Hissan stood bold,
Forged from wreckage, a tale to be told.
Thomas Kilpper and Jenin's hands combined,
An emblem of resilience, transcending mankind.

Ambulance remnants, echoes of strife,
A silent roar in the sculpture's life.
Landmarks rising, hope by its side,
Yet on October's eve, it crumbled in pride.

Despite the IOF's ruthless sweep,
In verses, Al-Hissan's spirit seeps.
A symbol enduring, in hearts, it'll stand,
A testament to strength across the land.
