THE armed wing of Palestine’s Fatah party has announced a mobilisation in the West Bank to confront heightened aggression by the Israeli occupiers.
The al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade said on Saturday that the action was necessary due to “the zionist escalation,” which has included the death of an 80-year old man.
Omar Asad was detained last week by Israeli soldiers, who blindfolded him and took him to a building site.
He was found dead in an empty building, in what Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh condemned as a crime.
Israel’s aggression has escalated in the West Bank with the expansion of its illegal settlement programme.
Settlers stormed the village of Qira in the early hours of yesterday, slashing the tyres of Palestinian-owned vehicles and spraying them with graffiti, including the slogan “death to Arabs.”
However, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other resistance groups warned on Saturday that the security and intelligence co-operation between the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government had “reached dangerous and unprecedented levels.”
Many are critical of President Mahmoud Abbas, whom they accuse of collaboration with Israel.
