Fatah official calls for terror: “Our resistance members need to strike the Zionist depth”

Official PA TV, live broadcast about a gun battle in Jenin in which terrorist Abd Al-Fattah Kharousha, who murdered 2 Israeli brothers, resisted arrest and was killed along with 6 other terrorists


Fatah Revolutionary Council member Wafa Zakarneh: Our resistance members need to strike the Zionist depth (i.e., inside Israel), because the occupation only understands the language of force, the language of violence... Our people needs to fight, and our [PA] government and our leadership need to dish out twice as much as they’ve received.

[Official PA TV, March 7, 2023]


The expression “to dish out twice as much as they’ve received” is a quote of PA and Fatah Chairman Abbas who after Israel killed three terrorists who had already carried out a number of terror attacks and were planning another imminent attack, called on Palestinians to “dish out to them [Israel] twice as much as we’ve received.” [Sawa, independent Palestinian news agency, Feb. 10, 2022]
