PLO official salutes Jenin terrorist “heroes”
Headline: “Fattouh holds the [Israeli] fascist right-wing government responsible for the massacre in Jenin”
“[Palestinian] National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) Chairman Rawhi Fattouh said that what is happening in the Jenin refugee camp is a despicable crime and a massacre that the fascist Israeli occupation army is committing (refers to Palestinian terrorists shooting at Israeli soldiers, in a gun battle in which 8 terrorists and 1 civilian were killed; see note below-Ed.).
In a statement he issued today, Thursday [Jan. 26, 2023], Fattouh held the fascist right-wing [Israeli] government, which is led by extremist criminals, fully responsible for this massacre…
Fattouh praised the resolve of our people in the heroic Jenin refugee camp and their brave resistance in their activity against the criminal occupation government’s gangs. He conveyed his sincere condolences and prayed to Allah that He have mercy on the Martyrs’ souls.”
Rawhi Fattouh also serves as Fatah Commissioner of International Relations
