Headline: “The PLO factions call for a Day of Rage tomorrow in condemnation of the American decisions”
“The PLO factions called to hold a Day of Rage tomorrow (Tuesday) [Nov. 26, 2019] in all districts of the homeland in condemnation of the American decisions against our people, the latest of which was considering the settlements legal (refers to statement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the US no longer considers Israeli settlements illegal; see note below –Ed.) …
In statements made separately to the official [PA] radio [station] The Voice of Palestine, the factions yesterday called on their activists and our people to take part in these activities, which will begin during the week in order to express our people’s opposition to all of the Zionist-American plots against the Palestinian cause.
Fatah Movement Deputy Chairman [and Fatah Central Committee member] Mahmoud Al-Aloul said that the movement and the national forces have consolidated a plan of struggle and activity on the ground at all levels for the coming period in order to escalate the struggle against the occupation in light of the unprecedented violations against our people.
He emphasized that under no circumstances can the present equation continue, and added that the American administration led by [US President Donald] Trump and the occupation government are gangs that are committing many crimes against our people, which have even reached the point of murder.
Al-Aloul announced that the [PA] leadership intends to put an end to all of the agreements that have been signed with Israel in light of the incessant violations and crimes against our people. He emphasized that the present situation must be changed in order to defend our national cause and the future of our children, and therefore there is no choice but to abandon all of the agreements that were signed with the Israeli side. He noted that along with the leadership’s political activity, the policy of struggle against the occupation and its settlers in all districts of the homeland will be a permanent matter, and will not be limited to the coming Tuesday and Friday.”
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the US administration’s new position on Israeli towns in the West Bank on Nov. 18, 2019, stating: "After carefully studying all sides of the legal debate... the establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not, per se, inconsistent with international law."
