Fatah deputy chairman calls to “escalate the popular resistance” terror, "emphasizing the importance of popular activity"

“Fatah Movement Deputy Chairman [and Fatah Central Committee member] Mahmoud Al-Aloul warned against the danger of the settlers’ intensifying attacks under the protection of the occupation forces against our people, its land, its property, and its holy sites, particularly in occupied Jerusalem. He also emphasized the importance of escalating the popular activity against these attacks that contradict the international laws and regulations.”



The terms "peaceful uprising/resistance,” and “popular uprising/resistance" are used by PA leaders at times to refer to peaceful protest and at times to refer to deadly terror attacks and terror waves. For example, ‎Mahmoud Abbas defined as “peaceful popular” the murderous terror during the 2015-2016 ‎terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”), in which 40 people were killed (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans and 1 Eritrean) and hundreds wounded in stabbings, shootings, and car ramming attacks. Abbas said: "We want peaceful popular uprising, and that’s what this is."
