PA TV News reader:"Have you received any criticism through the Internet or in statements as to why the [Palestinian] Civil Defense participates in extinguishing the fire in the '48-territories (i.e., Israel) or with the Israelis?"
Head of the PA civil defense, Ahmad Rizq:"I believe that the majority of the Palestinian people still think that this land [northern Israel] is Palestinian."
