Fatah announces to Palestinian prisoners that “resistance in its various forms is a legitimate right”

The terms “resistance in its various forms” and “all means” are ‎often used by PA leaders to refer to events that include violence and deadly terror ‎against Israeli civilians such as rock-throwing, stabbings and even shootings.
“Fatah Movement prisoners in the desert Ketziot Prison (i.e., southwest of Beer Sheva) marked the 68th anniversary of the Nakba (“the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) yesterday [May 13, 2016] and the day before, with several activities within the detention camp’s wings and cells. The prisoner Hani Ghannam, leader of the Fatah prisoners in Ketziot, noted that the movement has organized conferences to increase awareness, and cultural competitions and sport contests …
Ghannam noted that the Fatah Movement issued a central statement within the Israeli prisons, in which it emphasized that the resistance in its various forms is a legitimate right, and will remain an option until the achievement of our legitimate national principles, primarily the right of return, self-determination, and the establishment of our independent state.”
