Fatah official: "Popular resistance" will not be peaceful

PA TV broadcast a ceremony to honor outstanding students from the ‘Abu Jihad’ Khalil Al-Wazir class at the An-Najah National University. Abbas Zaki spoke at the ceremony.
Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: “We are in the field and we are not abandoning the field. Proof of this is that two-thirds of the prisoners in the [Israeli] prisons belong to Fatah… When we talk about popular resistance, we don’t say ‘peaceful popular resistance.’ No. We say ‘popular resistance’… We gave everything for peace and we now intend to give everything for the battlefield… We cannot turn against each other while Israel is against us. First of all, Israel is the primary enemy and the remaining [internal] hostilities will disappear afterwards.”
