PFLP pledge to respond to Israeli aggression against chief Saadat
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine stresses that the Israeli occupation is waging aggression against the prisoners to try and attack the Palestinian people.
The Israeli occupation holding in solitary confinement the Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Ahmed Saadat, and other PFLP prisoners is aimed at the key figures in the Palestinian captive movement behind bars in Israeli prisons, the Supreme National Emergency Committee said on Monday.
The committee issued a statement regarding the escalation being carried out by the Israeli occupation against Saadat and his imprisoned comrades.
The Palestinian captive movement said it was shocked earlier in the day by the ferocious raids carried out by the Israeli suppression units in the Ramon prison, which targeted the PFLP chief, as well as other senior officials in the group, under the pretext that they were giving directives to the resistance groups from behind bars.
The committee denied the false allegations, saying the accusations were merely used as a pretext by the Israeli prison administration to try and find a guise under which they can attack prisoner Saadat and his fellow PFLP officials.
The statement also explained that the committee was convening in a bid to follow up on the developments of the brutal attack being carried out against Palestinian prisoners, noting that it was discussing the appropriate steps to counter the Israeli occupation's attempts to attack the Palestinian people by taking their revenge against unarmed prisoners.
The Ministry of Prisoners reported earlier that the occupation prisons administration dismissed captive prisoner Ahmed Saadat and PFLP officials earlier in the day, stressing that this decision was a continuation of the Israeli occupation targeting the icons of the captive movement.
The occupation will not succeed in bullying any party or faction in prison, the ministry said, stressing that "Tel Aviv" continuing with its provocative practices would lead to escalation.
According to the Prisoners' Information Office, the prisoners of the PFLP underline that if the imprisoned leader of the movement is not taken out of solitary confinement, there will be escalatory steps.
It is noteworthy that prisoner Saadat was kidnapped in 2006 from the US- and UK-monitored Ariha prison after it was demolished by the occupation forces, and was sentenced to 30 years in Israeli prison, after being accused of organizing the assassination of Israeli Minister Rehavam Ze'evi.
It is worth mentioning that Saadat is a Palestinian politician and Secretary-General of the PFLP. He was chosen as Secretary-General after the assassination of its former Secretary-General Abu Ali Mustafa by the occupation forces with two missiles that targeted his office in the city of Ramallah.
PFLP Secretary-General Ahmed Saadat stated that confrontations and the occupation's practices in the occupied West Bank will inevitably spark a Third Intifada.
According to Saadat, as reported by Press TV, the upcoming intifada will not resemble the two previous ones. In fact, he noted that the anticipated intifada will be fully-fledged in that it will not be limited by the rules previously-set rules of engagement, but rather it will result in the breakdown of law and order.
It is worth reminding that the First Intifada was initiated on December 8, 1987, when Palestinians sacrificed and broke the rules of engagement for the first time in an attempt to not only defend their land, principles, and sanctities but also to liberate their land and people. In the First Intifada, Palestinians wrote a new, inspiring history with their blood and sacrifices for all generations to come.
The Second Intifada began on September 28, 2000, and was known as the Al-Aqsa Intifada. Today a Third Intifada is beginning to emerge according to a number of Resistance leaders as well as by Israeli admission.
Recent operations in West Bank 'new kind of intifada'
Israeli media confirmed that "what we have been witnessing in recent months in the West Bank is a 'new kind of Intifada' that is different from the Intifada of the 80s and the Second Intifada, and is characterized by a lot of violence against the army."
Israeli Channel 13's military affairs commentator, Alon Ben-David, said, "I hear statements about what we have been seeing in recent months, saying it is a new kind of uprising that is different from what we witnessed in the 80s and in the year 2000, and what distinguishes it is a lot of violence directed against the Israeli army in every arrest operation."
"This is not only in Jenin and Nablus; there are also blocks of stones and mass shooting at the Israeli soldiers by young men who do not belong to any organization, therefore the hesitation now. Ahead the eve of the October holidays, we might possibly intensify pressure and carry out more arrests, or on the contrary, take a step back and limit confrontation," Ben-David said.
