Haifa and Jaffa are “Palestinian,” says PLO and Fatah official

PLO Central Council member and Fatah Revolutionary Council member Abd Al-Ilah Atteereh: “We are moving to a stage of struggle that the entire Palestinian people will participate in. The Jordan Valley, as far as we’re concerned, is like Jerusalem, Nablus, Haifa (i.e., Israeli city), and Jaffa (i.e., Israeli city). It is our eastern border and it must not be relinquished… It is our historical land that is registered in the name of my father, my grandfather, and your grandfather, and we will not relinquish one centimeter.”
