The Palestinian Authority in the occupied West Bank, issued a statement denouncing the latest Israeli crime, leading to the death of four Palestinians in Jenin, in northern West Bank, on Monday at dawn, and described it as part of the ongoing Israeli terrorism against the Palestinian people.
The four slain Palestinians have been identified as Nour Abdullah Jarrar, 19, Saleh Ahmad Ammar, 19, Raed Ziad Abdul-Latif Abu Saif, 21, and Amjad Eyad Husseiniyya, 20.
The P.A. and its Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said the Israeli killing of the four Palestinians in Jenin city and Jenin refugee camp is yet another coldblooded Israeli crime that was premeditated by Israeli officials in both the military and political arenas.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates also said it will be filing an official complaint with the International Criminal Court.
“This crime is an act of state-sponsored terrorism against the Palestinian people,” the Foreign Affairs Ministry stated, “It was planned and executed by Israeli officials who feel encouraged by the deadly silence of the International Community.”
It added that, by not condemning the escalating Israeli crimes, and by failing to act on ending them, the International Community is not only complicit but also protects the criminals.
In addition, Osama al-Qawasmi, the official spokesperson of the Fateh Movement and a member of its Revolutionary Council, said the crime was planned in Tel Aviv by Israeli leaders who continue to spill Palestinian blood and continue to escalate their crimes.
“Where is the International Community? Where are its various organizations? Human rights groups?!”, he exclaimed, “Why do they continue their deadly silence and complicity? Why do they continue their double standards, instead of ending these crimes?! However, we the Palestinian people will remain steadfast and will continue to resist this criminal occupation.”
On its part, the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) vowed that this crime will not go unpunished and added that the Israeli policy of extrajudicial executions is not new but was never able to curb the ongoing resistance and struggle for liberation and independence.
The Palestinian People’s Party (PPS) also issued a statement denouncing the latest Israeli crime and called for ongoing resistance against the occupation.
“The Palestinian people and their factions will continue to resist this illegal and criminal occupation by any means,” the DFLP stated, “When you are occupied, you have the right to resist your occupier and oppressor by all available means.”
It also demanded the Palestinian Authority to stop the mere condemnations and “failed bets on the so-called peace process,” but instead to unite with the people, with all factions, to resist this illegal and criminal occupation, and called for ending all sorts of coordination with Israel, including security coordination and the Paris Economic Protocol.
Various Palestinian factions also condemned the crimes and called for intensifying the resistance against the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine, until achieving the legitimate Palestinian demands of liberation and independence.
