WND – April 2, 2017
WASHINGTON – Using social media to call for terror attacks and fires “to burn the land like an inferno,” Palestinians geared up for Israel’s Passover week observances and their own annual April 17 celebration of “Prisoner’s Day.”
The ruling Fatah Party of the official Palestinian Authority government led the cries for violence that would “escalate the confrontation with the occupier.”
“Let us turn April 17, 2017, into a fire that will burn the occupiers and burn the land like an inferno under the feet of the tyrants, and let’s escalate the popular resistance everywhere,” the Fatah student movement posted on the official Fatah Facebook page. “Therefore, we call on our brave students and the masses of our people to escalate the confrontation with the occupier at all the places of confrontation.”
In previous April 17 “Prisoner’s Day” terror, some 16 Israelis have been murdered.
