Fatah Central Committee member Nasser Al-Qidwa spoke about the difficulty of the current stage that the Palestinian cause is going through, and about the importance of the unity of the Palestinian people and the national unity. He said that the political struggle at the UN is not new, and it is necessary to continue to double the efforts to realize the dream of the state through all means and ways.
Al-Qidwa said: ‘The popular uprising (‎‎Palestinian euphemism for several months of Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis 2015 - 2016 -Ed.) comes as a natural response to the policies of the Israeli enemy, which has ignored all of the efforts to establish the Palestinian state.’”
