"Confrontation with the occupation will not be limited" – Fatah calls to expand the violence against Israel

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning




Official Fatah Spokesperson Hussein Hamayel: “From our perspective as the Fatah Movement, from the first moment that the attack began on the Jenin refugee camp and Jenin (refers to counter-terror activity after Jenin terrorist Ra’ad Hazem murdered 3 in Tel Aviv -Ed.) there was a decision by Fatah that was disseminated to all the members of Fatah, according to which the confrontation with the occupation will not be limited to Jenin such that Jenin will remain alone, as the statements by [Israeli] occupation Prime Minister Naftali Bennett dealt with Jenin and Ya’abad.


When the popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) spread and we the Palestinians paid a heavy price on this matter – Martyrs from Hebron, Ghada Sabateen (i.e., threateningly approached soldiers and refused orders to stop) in the village of Husan, wounded people, tender youth upon who they opened fire and cut off their arms and legs – in this way the popular resistance spread.


Our people must carry out the matter in practice, to confront the occupation forces and the settlers everywhere they are, as the situation at the Al-Aqsa Mosque now demands real action by every Palestinian of the Palestinian national action factions without exception.






Ra'ad Hazem - 28-year-old Palestinian terrorist 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.


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."


Ghada Sabateen – 40-year-old female Palestinian terrorist who threateningly approached Israeli security forces and ignored their calls to stop, causing the forces to open fire in the air and then eventually shoot and kill her in self-defense at Husan, west of Bethlehem, on April 10, 2022. Sabateen was found to be unarmed.
