Abbas has “no reservations about any action” – taken by joint Fatah–Hamas committee
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: "You must begin – senior officials, secretary-generals, and deputy secretary-generals – establishing these committees and these activities so that they will begin their work immediately. I will have no reservations about any action or committee, or about any person or organization in any committee or action. I will also have no reservations about any decision made by these activists. Take into account that from now on I agree to everything.”
Abbas is referring to The United National Leadership of the Popular Resistance – A committee to oversee and direct the “popular resistance” that was established following the meeting of the secretary-generals of the Palestinian factions - which include several terror organizations - on Sept. 3, 2020. In this committee, Fatah is coordinating openly with representatives of internationally designated terror organizations such as Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
Several Fatah members have stated openly that “all means of struggle” are legal – i.e., including the armed struggle.
