      "The Fatah Movement organized a mass procession in the Nahr Al-Bared refugee camp that set out from Martyr (Shahid) Yasser Arafat Square in the old refugee camp, with the participation of the Palestinian popular factions and committees in northern [Lebanon]…
Leader of the north branch and Secretary of the factions and Fatah in Nahr Al-Bared Abu Salim Ghneim gave a speech on behalf of Fatah and said: …‘We see the Jerusalem Intifada and its heroic popular resistance as a national achievement that came in response to the racist and criminal policies, the summary executions, the burning of families, the continuation of settlement, and the Judaization and tearing apart of Jerusalem, and also as a natural response to [US President Donald] Trump's Nazi decision to consider Jerusalem the capital of “Israel,” and his threat to transfer his country's embassy to Jerusalem.’"
