Palestinian organizations call for escalation of ‘intifada’
According to Israeli National News “Representatives of the major Palestinian Arab organizations met yesterday to discuss how to escalate the “Al-Quds Intifada”.
In a statement released at the end of the meeting it was noted that “the assassinations of our people (Palestinians) in the streets amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity”. They called for a continuation of the intifada in all points of friction, military checkpoints in Judea and Samaria, and on the outskirts of the cities, primarily on Tuesdays and Fridays, and for boycott Israeli products.
The goal of the Palestinian struggle, according to the statement, is to achieve “freedom, independence, securing the right of return of refugees, [and] the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with its capital in Jerusalem and sovereignty”.
