Fatah warns Israel of ‘all-out conflict’ over Jerusalem

The central committee of Fatah, the movement led by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, warns of a broader conflict with Israel amid escalating tensions in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

In a statement, the committee calls for a “continuation of the public uprising and fight against the occupation and the settlers.”

“The continuation of the settler attacks on the holy places and the homes of Palestinian residents, their expulsion and expansion of settlements — will lead to an all-out conflict in all the Palestinian territories,” it adds.

The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, Fatah’s armed wing, also puts out a statement threatening Israel.

“We will not abandon our holy places. We will be as one hand in our response to the enemy,” it says.
