Headline: “The first Palestinian political party responds to the stabbing operation in Jerusalem”




“The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) praised the heroic operation (i.e., stabbing attack, 2 people wounded) that was carried out this evening [Nov. 17, 2021] in occupied Jerusalem, in which three settlers were wounded, one of them seriously (sic., terrorist Omar Ibrahim Abu Asab wounded 2 Israeli border police officers, neither of them seriously, before they shot and killed him in defense). It emphasized that this is the [appropriate] response, and this this is the way to get rid of the occupation and its settlers and fight the occupation’s crimes and its plans against our people and its holy sites.


In a statement, a copy of which reached [the independent Palestinian news agency] Donia Al-Watan, the PFLP emphasized that this operation again proves that our people’s revolution is continuing, heating up, and becoming more qualitative day by day. It also said that all the attempts to thwart it or conspire against it will fail.”
