Posted text: “The Fatah Movement’s Nablus branch held the right-wing occupation government responsible for the escalation against our people and against the Nablus district specifically, with its latest incident being the crime of assassinating three Fatah fighters in Nablus (refers to assassination of Fatah terrorists planning an imminent shooting attack; see note below -Ed.).
In a statement issued today, Wednesday [Feb. 8, 2022], Fatah emphasized that the assassination crime is a severe escalation, and that it constitutes a turning point for everything regarding the escalation of the confrontation with the occupation, as what was before it is not what will be after it, and no one can turn back the hands of time.
Fatah emphasized that the occupation government is attempting to break the Nablus district’s honor and pride through its incessant crimes, whether it is the attacks by the settler herds or the recurring invasions, murders, and arrests.
Fatah’s Nablus Secretary Muhammad Hamdan declared general mourning for the souls of the heroic Martyrs. He emphasized that Fatah has instructed all its activists to escalate the activities of confrontation with this tyrannical occupation.”
