The Jerusalem Post reports,
Fatah’s armed wing, the Aksa Martyrs Brigades, announced Tuesday it would no longer honor understandings reached with Israel, and called on its members to carry weapons to defend themselves against the IDF.
“We call on all our members who handed over their weapons to the Palestinian security forces to report to their commanders so that they can be issued new weapons,” said a leaflet distributed in Ramallah.
The group said the decision was made after the IDF arrested two Fatah gunmen who had been given amnesty by Israel in line with understandings reached between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
I wonder what the two were doing when they were arrested? This is beginning to sound exactly like the on-again-off-again ‘truce’ with Hamas in Gaza last year.
In any event, there will be plenty of weapons available to issue to them, thanks to the US, with Israel’s cooperation.
What did anybody think would happen?
