"We will defend our people and its resources with all possible means," including violence and terror, declares Fatah Spokesperson

Headline: “Senior [PA] officials: What is happening in Sheikh Jarrah reaches the level of war crimes”

 

 

 

 

“Palestinian figures and activists condemned the recurring attacks by the occupation and its settlers against the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, which reached their peak yesterday [Feb. 13, 2022] when extremist Israeli Parliament Member Itamar Ben Gvir opened an office on the land of the Salem family (sic., the land does not belong to the family of illegal Arab squatters whose home is slated for demolition) in the western part of the neighborhood (Ben Gvir opened the office to protest the lack of police presence in the neighborhood, after a Jewish home was firebombed there on Feb. 11, 2022 -Ed.)…

 

[PA] Presidential Office Advisor on Jerusalem Affairs Ahmed Al-Ruweidi said that the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood will only be Palestinian, and that all the legal documents clarify this…

 

He added: ‘The occupation police committed a night attack yesterday (sic., two days ago), and today (sic., yesterday) this repeated itself when extremist Israeli Parliament Member Ben Gvir went there according to the occupation government’s decision to terrorize the people and cause them to willingly emigrate’ (sic., Ben Gvir went of his own initiative, and Israeli police attempted to dismantle his office by force on Feb. 13, 2022).

 

Al-Ruweidi held the occupation government fully responsible for the results of this attack on the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood…

 

He said: ‘We said that the occupation police is the one that bears responsibility for the escalation by allowing this extremist to come to Sheikh Jarrah and open an office.’ …

 

Fatah Movement Spokesperson in Jerusalem Muhammad Rabia said that what is happening in Jerusalem is ethnic cleansing…

 

He emphasized that our people, Fatah, and everyone whose conscience is alive will not sit idly by in light of the Israeli terrorist aggression, and he said that we will defend our people and its resources with all possible means (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror).”

 

 

 

 

The terms “all means,” “all means of resistance,” “all forms,” are ‎used by PA leaders to include using all types of violence, including deadly terror ‎against Israeli civilians such as stabbings and shootings, as well as throwing rocks and Molotov Cocktails.
