Posted text: “Fatah: Israel alone bears responsibility for the Palestinian responses to the occupation’s crimes against the members of our people
Head of the Communications Office of the Fatah Movement’s Mobilization and Organization Commission Munir Al-Jaghoub said that Israel alone bears responsibility for the Palestinian responses to all of the occupation’s crimes, and that if it continues its incessant aggression against the Palestinian people, it can only expect more violence. He added that the daily Israeli operations and the occupation’s violations against the members of our people everywhere are the reason for every cycle of violence.
Munir Al-Jaghoub: ‘Israel must understand well the consequences of the fact that it is continuing to push towards violence, and is continuing in the policy of destroying homes, forcing the migration of [Arab] residents of Jerusalem, the incessant invasions by the herds of settlers of the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas with the reinforcement of [Israel’s] forces, and the murder of Palestinians in cold blood at its checkpoints that are spread over the territories that were occupied in 1967.’”

Nimr Mahmoud Ahmed Al-Jamal - Palestinian terrorist who shot and murdered an Israeli border police officer and two security guards and wounded another Israeli at the entrance to Har Adar, northwest of Jerusalem, on Sept. 26, 2017. Al-Jamal was shot and killed during the attack by other border police officers.

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion.” It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.
