Headline: “Fatah and the Democratic Front [for the Liberation of Palestine]: The occupation bears responsibility for the provocations”
“Fatah Movement Spokespersonin GazaMundhir Al-Hayek said that the occupation bears responsibility for the escalation.
He emphasized that the Palestinian people’s response comes as part of a natural response to the policy of assassinations, killing, and attacks in Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the provocations of the Muslims’ sensibilities, particularly in the blessed [Muslim fasting] month of Ramadan.
Democratic Front [for the Liberation of Palestine] (DFLP) leadership member Talal Abu Tharifa said that ‘The self-sacrificing operation (refers to terrorist Ra’ad Hazem murdering 3; see note below -Ed.) indicates a qualitative development in the resistance’s function and the Palestinian people’s struggle activity.’
He emphasized that ‘The occupation’s crimes against our people have caused the resistance fighters to move the operations to the heart of the occupation,'"
Ra'ad Hazem - 28-year-old Palestinian terrorist and PA Security Forces member who shot and murdered 3 Israeli civilians - 27-year-olds Tomer Morad and Eytam Magini and 35-year-old Barak Lufan - and wounded 14 others when he opened fire on a crowded bar on Dizengoff Street in central Tel Aviv on April 7, 2022. Hazem escaped the scene of the attack and was found hiding near a mosque in Jaffa by Israeli security forces several hours later. He opened fire on them and was killed in the ensuing shootout.
