A few days after Shireen Abu Akleh, a Palestinian American journalist working for Al Jazeera, was shot and killed while covering a gunfight in Jenin initiated by Palestinian terrorists, a Fatah official called for a new wave of Palestinian terror.

According to a report by Palestinian Media Watch, Fatah Nablus Branch Secretary Muhammad Hamdan said the goal of that effort would be the “liberation” of “Palestine.”

During the interview, which aired on official PA TV, Hamdan said “Allah willing, there will be a Shireen [Abu Akleh] Intifada, a Jenin Intifada, a Jerusalem Intifada, and all of our people’s activity will be planted in this intifada in the defense of Jerusalem and Jenin. Allah willing, this intifada will be the ‘Liberation Intifada.’ ”

PMW further noted that on Fatah Party social media, Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki stated: “I think that the Palestinian people are on the brink of a great intifada.”
