Palestinian factions, today, called for rallies and protests throughout the occupied Palestinian territories, tomorrow, against the latest US position that considers Israeli settlements not inconsistent with international law.
PA President Mahmoud Abbasâ Fateh movement spearheaded the call, joined by other factions and city councils rallying people throughout the occupied territories to join the protests âin condemnation of the American-Israeli conspiracy against our people, their cause and for stealing the land.â
Member of Fateh Central Committee and of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Azzam Ahmad, told Voice of Palestine radio that all the factions have agreed on holding the day of rage tomorrow, âto speak in one voice and tell the entire world that our rights cannot be stolen by the occupation and to affirm our commitment to the national program of the PLO and its rejection of the American administration, which is biased toward Israel.â
He said that Palestinians are discussing the call for a special session of the United Nations Security Council and, if the US uses the veto, then the issue will be raised at the UN General Assembly under the term “United for Peace,” to condemn the last US pro-settlements declaration.
Jamal Muheisen, also a Fateh Central Committee member, told Voice of Palestine that the day of rage is only the beginning of a series or activities until there is a mass uprising against the crimes of the Israeli occupation.
