Head of Palestinian Islamic Jihad: Separation wall prevents the valid "strategic option" of suicide bombings

Ramadan Shalah, Head of Palestinian Islamic Jihad:      "The Martyrdom-seeking [suicide] operations as a strategic option invented by the Palestinians, is an option which exists, we haven't abandoned it. However, the timing of [terror] operations, and the ability to execute those operations, are issues for the field [commanders]. For example, in the West Bank, there's the separation wall, which is an obstacle for the resistance [terror]. If it did not exist, the situation would be completely different."
