After the Israeli war and lose of whole family, Essa’s mother asked him repeatedly to marry a new lady to continue his life normally without sorrow.
Essa accepted mother’s order to get married from Sundus Taha Al-Muqayyad, 24 and now he has two sons to follow his footsteps Mohammed from the new wife and AbdulHadi who survived from Israeli brutality.
The 38- year old commander was born in 14/8/1973 for a Palestinian family who was expelled from its own land of Al Faluja in the occupied territories of 48.

He served in Al Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas as a loyal and honest commander who did not give up, despite the deep pain he faced.
Martyrdom of Essa, the father:
On Friday night 31 of July, Al Qassam commander Essa al-Batran was on an appointment with martyrdom when hateful Israeli F16 targeted his new house in Al Nuseirat refugee camp, central Gaza Strip.
The attack caused of martyrdom of the Qassam commander Essa, while massive destruction was left in the area.
Finally, and After five Israeli attempts aimed to assassinate him, he got his wish of meeting family he lost during war.
Today, Essa Batran meets with his family he so long missed since long time of separation.
No doubt, Al Qassam brigades are going to miss a great commander who so long spent his valuable time for Jihad against strangers who stolen the land and committed the most brutal acts against the innocents.
As he was a loyal and brave commander, Al Qassam Brigades vows revenge and vows to keep loyal for his blessed blood and all martyrs till the liberation of whole Palestine.
