Text on screen: “The Al-Aqsa-Palestine [Martyrs’] Brigades is officially announcing its operations (i.e., terror attacks), the Fatah Movement takes responsibility for the operations of its military arm [the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades], and the Fatah leadership announces that it has returned to the phase of the armed struggle (i.e., Fatah’s euphemism for terror)"

An excerpt is shown from a recent speech by Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki.

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: “[We are,] on behalf of Fatah, in a process of encouraging, of ending the stage in which [the Israelis] thought that matters had ended in their favor. [PA President] Abbas promised the world last year [at the UN General Assembly] that one year was left.”

Footage is shown from a shooting attack on an Israeli military bulldozer on Sept. 13, 2022, next to Jalame checkpoint, while a song is played in the background. No Israeli soldiers were wounded in the attack, although equipment was damaged.

Text on screen: “Jalame checkpoint, Jenin, Sept. 13, 2022.
The Fatah Movement targets the occupation army this morning.”

Lyrics: “The Fatah member does not fear death, the Fatah member
O Fatah member, light a fire, O Fatah member

O Al-Aqsa [Martyrs’] Brigades, press [the enemy] strongly and we are with you
We are the Fatah generation that will not return

I return to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, this is the response
O young people of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, rise up like fire and a volcano”

O Fatah member
