Fatah urges "escalation of Palestinian popular resistance" terror to "stand against" Israeli "settler herds”

Headline: “The Fatah Central Committee emphasizes that we must escalate the popular resistance and stand against the settler herds”




“The Fatah Central Committee held a meeting yesterday [Feb. 13, 2022] to discuss the developments in the Palestinian arena in light of the escalation in Israeli attacks and the recent state of affairs in Sheikh Jarrah (i.e., a predominantly Arab neighborhood of Jerusalem) and the various points of confrontation…

As part of its discussions yesterday, Fatah emphasized that we must escalate the popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) and stand against the settler herds.”





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."
