Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas met with Fatah’s regional commanders on Wednesday, scolded them and demanded to know why the Palestinian street was still lethargic and calm, a Fatah official told TPS.
Abbas urged them to generate a long line of incidents, adding that even if they are unable to mobilize thousands into the streets, he expects continuous events at multiple locations.
According to the source, Abu Mazen met with decision-makers in the various PA institutions and agreed to escalate the events vis-à-vis the IDF and Israeli citizens.
Abbas on Thursday convened all union and labor leaders to motivate them to arrange demonstrations.
Abbas has declared the PA will actively oppose the US’ Deal of the Century peace plan and has demanded actions, but his calls have been met with minimal responses from the Palestinian street.
It should be noted that Abu Mazen did not order armed attacks but rather widespread violent demonstrations which often include rock and firebomb throwing.
At the same time, various sources indicate that there is no change in the policy of the PA’s security forces and its cooperation with Israeli forces.
Meanwhile, senior Fatah official Tawfiq Tirawi declared that the three million Palestinians in Judea and Samaria are “the Shahid project.”
Since the announcement of Trump’s “Deal of the Century” there has been a notable uptick in terror attacks against Jews.
Just last week, more than a dozen Golani soldiers were run over by a ramming terrorist, a police officer was shot in the arm near the Temple Mount, and IDF soldier was shot in the head in the Binyamin region, and numerous Israeli civilians have come under rock attacks on the roads.
