Fatah official: "The big explosion is coming"
The Al-Mayadeen TV channel (Lebanon) interviewed Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi in the Qalandiya refugee camp, which was the site of a violent demonstration on July 24, 2014.Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi: “These are small explosions, which happen occasionally, but the big explosion is on its way. The big explosion is on its way. After the big explosion, no one will know how far it will reach and what results it will have.”
Al-Mayadeen TV channel (Lebanon) interviewer: “Is the era of weapons over in the West Bank, or is it really possible – if the affairs in the Gaza Strip continue, and the number of Martyrs (Shahids) continues to rise drastically, as it does each day – that the situation will deteriorate into the big explosion you are talking about, an explosion of weapons against weapons?”
Fatah Central Committee member Tawfiq Tirawi: “There might not be weapons against weapons, because the balance of power is unequal. But I can’t promise [anything regarding] our young fighting brothers, who are being murdered and whose homes are being demolished. These fighters may well use all [existing] means. In a case like that of the Palestinians, it is legal to use all means – one will shoot, another will throw a stone, some will hold a demonstration, others will hold a sit-down strike. All these means will be possible and permissible for our people, and no one will say that weapons are forbidden in the West Bank.”
