“We should shoot” anyone who cooperates with Israel, says Fatah official

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: "In 1980 at the Amman conference and in 1990 at the Baghdad conference, it was said that if any state recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the ties with it should be cut - not to normalize with it... We’ve made a decision that Israel is not a state or a neighbor. It is an enemy, and we are treating it as such. Every day I ask all our institutions if we know that someone is cooperating [with Israel], we should shoot him. We should fire at him because [cooperation] is forbidden now."

Zaki also holds the position as Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations
