Text in letter:
“His Honor the Honorable President Raul Castro
President of Cuba
Secretary-General of the Cuban Communist Party - Havana

With great sorrow we mourn, together with you, in the name of the Palestinian people and all members of Fatah, the late international revolutionary leader

Fidel Castro

The giants do not die, and only their body goes, because they are planted in the memory and heart of the honorable people of this world, and particularly the giant leader Fidel, as many of the heroes of the people of Palestine bore his name as a symbol of the struggle against imperialism and all types of oppression and occupation. 
We see this as an opportunity to again emphasize our loyalty to you, Your Honor the President, to your fighting party, and to the great Cuban people, the friend.  We express to you our warm condolences and ask of Allah that he let the late giant dwell in Paradise and imbue you and the family of the revolution with consolation and patience in our modern world.
From the belly of Eve to the belly of the earth man goes
At the hour of birth.

Abbas Zaki,
Fatah Central Committee member
Commissioner for Arab and China Relations”
