The Fateh movement said, today, that it stands behind PA President Mahmoud Abbas and fully supports the positions expressed in his speech before the United Nations Security Council, warning of the implications rendered by the Israeli delegate’s portrayal of Abbas as an obstacle to peace, in calling for him to step down.

“This position is reminiscent of what happened to the leader Yasser Arafat when he adhered to the national constants and refused to give up the legitimate Palestinian national rights, especially on the issue of Jerusalem, refugees and an independent, sovereign Palestinian state on the June 4, 1967 borders,” said Fateh in a statement, WAFA reports.

It said that “targeting the president is targeting the Palestinian people, targeting our national rights and our right to self-determination, freedom and independence,” stressing that it outright rejects the calls of the Israeli UN delegate and that it will defy them by all means.

Fateh said that it will continue the struggle with President Abbas, to defeat the so-called “Deal of the Century” because it is a plan to liquidate the Palestinian issue.
