Islamic Jihad: Only the resistance capable of deterring the occupation
The Islamic Jihad Movement has said that the Palestinian resistance is the only means capable of deterring the occupation and curbing its crimes against the Palestinians. The Movement’s remarks came after Israeli soldiers cold-bloodedly killed a Palestinian young man and his sister on Wednesday at Qalandiya checkpoint, north of Occupied Jerusalem.
“The [Israeli] persistence in such crimes will escalate the intifada (uprising) and the resistance, and make the Palestinian people defend themselves and avenge those martyrs,” spokesman for Islamic Jihad Dawoud Shihab told Quds Press. “It has become a binding option for all Palestinians to defend themselves because it has become evident that only the resistance constitutes a deterrent to the occupation and settlers,” spokesman Shihab added.
