Fatah official blames terror attack on Israeli “terror and murder,” calls attack that killed 2 Israelis an “operation”

Text and pictures posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

The pictures show screen shots from a broadcast on Israeli news website Ynet on the terror attack that took place in the Barkan Industrial Zone on Oct. 7, 2018 in which 2 Israelis were murdered. The first picture shows the terrorist fleeing with a rifle, and the second picture shows the outside of the factory where the attack took place.

"The Israeli government – which tries to protect those who steal the Palestinian land and to deny the rights of the Palestinian people, which have been established by international decisions and law – is incapable of protecting anyone that steals the Palestinian land, regardless of what [military] equipment it owns, how much power it has, and how much it uses terror and murder. Today's [Oct. 7, 2018] operation (i.e., terror attack, 2 murdered) is additional proof of this.
The only solution lies in recognizing the rights of our people, by realizing the Palestinian national independence in the framework of a free and fully sovereign state, which will be established on the occupied land and on the June 4, 1967, borders, and whose capital is East Jerusalem.
Any attempt to bypass these rights will not benefit Israel and will not bring security to it and its citizens as nobody will achieve security as long as our people remains denied its rights in its homeland.
