PA's coming actions will “be based on” previous waves of terror, says PLO official

PLO Executive Committee member Wasel Abu Yusuf: "When the Palestinian people set out on its first Intifada in response to an attempt to erase the Palestinian cause, and also when it set out on its second Intifada in response to the attempt to harm Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine, and when eternal Martyr President Yasser Arafat at Camp David 2 rejected the harming of the Palestinian refugees’ right of return – the Palestinian leadership is currently acting based on this."

The first Intifada - Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel 1987-1993, approximately 200 Israelis murdered

The second Intifada – PA terror campaign (2000-2005) in which more than 1,100 Israelis were murdered.

PLO Executive Committee member Wasel Abu Yusuf made this statement following a meeting in July 2020 with representatives from Fatah, the PLO, and others who announced they are planning a “popular uprising that will result in a comprehensive intifada.”
