        Fatah producing new rockets
to replenish supplies for coming wars
with "the Zionist enemy"

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik


Last week, Fatah invited an RT (Russian TV) journalist to a rocket production facility to witness and film the actual production of new rockets. Fatah's military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, depleted its reserves while taking an active part in the Gaza war alongside Hamas, firing rockets at Israeli towns and cities:

Palestinian journalist (for RT TV):
"The moment the war (in Gaza, 2014) ended, the Palestinian military wings renewed military production in order to replenish the stock, which was emptied during the war."  [Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page", Sept. 10, 2014 (from RT TV)]

Fatah posted the video on its official Facebook "Main Page," showing Fatah members at work producing new rockets. As explained by the masked Fatah fighter:

"We are preparing and developing rockets in the productions' division of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades - Al-Asifa Army following the ceasefire agreement in preparation for the coming battles."

The journalist explained that because of the blockade of Gaza, which prevents the smuggling of weapons, the Palestinian factions in Gaza are now producing their own rockets.

It is not surprising that Fatah has to rebuild its supply of weapons. Recently, Palestinian Media Watch reported that PA and Fatah Chairman Mahmoud Abbas hinted at Fatah's large-scale participation in the Gaza war, stating that 17 times more Fatah members were killed than Hamas members.

The following is an excerpt of the report that Fatah posted on its Facebook "Main page" from RT TV:

RT TV reporter: "The moment the war (Gaza, 2014) ended, the Palestinian military wings renewed military production in order to replenish the stock, which was emptied during the war. We are visiting the Al-Aqsa Brigades - Al-Asifa Army (i.e., Fatah's military wing)... where fuel for rockets and mortar shells is being produced."
Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades fighter: "We are preparing and developing rockets in the productions' division of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades - Al-Asifa Army following the ceasefire agreement in preparation for the coming battles."
RT TV reporter: "Because of the tightening of the blockade on the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian factions have attempted to develop their military industry, and here we can clearly see the importance..."
Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades fighter: "During the last war, we fired rockets at the Zionist enemy. We have notified the enemy that we have many more [rockets]. We have also successfully developed the K-132 rocket, which is here beside me."
