Fatah’s Secretary in Jenin, Ata Abu Rumeileh, praised Palestinian terrorist Diaa Hamarsheh, who murdered five Israelis last week in a shooting spree in Bnei Brak.

According to a report by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Rumeileh said that Hamarsheh had been “one of the leaders of Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades” and that the Zionists he killed were in revenge for “our pure martyrs.”

He made the comments in a March 30 interview that aired on Alghad TV  in Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.

“We say to this occupation: You cannot break our people’s determination. Our people’s determination draws from our belief in Allah,” he said.

“This resistance will continue. Our confrontation today with the occupation. … There is no peace and no negotiations. The only language between us and this criminal occupation is the language of resistance,” he added, according to MEMRI.
