Fatah brags of two terror fronts: PA security services and Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades

The video shows masked men carrying assault rifles and members of the PA Security Forces, while official PA TV host and Editor in Chief of the independent Palestinian news agency Ma’an Nasser Al-Lahham is heard speaking. Al-Lahham’s words appear as text on screen.

Official PA TV host Nasser Al-Lahham and text on screen: “Why is precisely this [operation] considered high-quality? Because it was carried out by the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, Fatah’s military wing, and one of the Palestinian [PA] Security Forces officers [Ahmed Abed]. This means the opening of two new fronts: First, with Fatah, which is dictating active responses – all the Fatah members in the occupied West Bank. Second, with the [PA] Security Forces members. Israel fears that the focus will be on a repeating of a similar event with Palestinian officers, and this is what happened in 2000-2001. Most of the Martyrs and most of the prisoners serving life were Security Forces members and Fatah members. Therefore, this is a new, large, and dangerous battle, and therefore Israel sat with high-ranking PA officials and asked them to suppress the intifada through arrests, and the PA refused because this land is occupied and matters currently are not as Israel thinks.”

Text on screen: “The [PA] Security Forces – the shield of the homeland”
