Last week, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party posted three images glorifying the use of violence against Israel on its official Facebook page. The above image showing rockets being launched appeared with the text:  

 

"We have more [rockets], Zionists!"

[Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page," Feb. 9, 2015] 

 

Another image also showed a Fatah fighter with a rocket and others firing weapons.

 


 
"Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Army of the Storm,
Fatah's military wing. The Rage of the Storm."
[Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page", Feb. 9, 2015]

 

A third poster showed a man firing an automatic rifle, with the text:

 

"The end of Israel, the liberation of Palestine"

[Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page," Feb. 9, 2015]

 

"Palestinian National Liberation Movement - Fatah, Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in Palestine,
The Path of the Storm. The end of Israel,
the liberation of Palestine."
[Facebook, "Fatah - The Main Page", Feb. 9, 2015]

 

Names such as "the Path of the Storm" or "the Rage of the Storm" also appeared on the posters and refer to Palestinian rocket attacks against Israel during the 2014 Gaza war.  This reference to the recent war, coupled with the words "the end of Israel," implies that Fatah is threatening to renew such attacks.

 

Less than two weeks ago, Palestinian Media Watch reported that Fatah promoted rocket attacks in a similar post on its Facebook page.

 

Likewise, Abbas' party emphasized its adherence to the use of violence, stating in January that it has "not thrown down the rifle."

 

All three images posted by Fatah on Feb. 9, 2015, bore the logo and name of Fatah's military wing "the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in Palestine."
