Palestinian resistance factions on Monday called for escalating the Palestinian intifada (uprising) against the Israeli occupation.

The factions hailed resistance operations in the West Bank and Occupied Jerusalem and called for escalating resistance operations as a strategic option to defend Muslims’ holy places. They also urged Palestinians to unify their efforts to confront Israeli aggressive practices.

In a press conference held in Gaza City, the Palestinian factions asked the Palestinian Authority (PA) to halt its security coordination with Israel and to stop chasing Palestinian resistance activists.

The factions stressed the right of Muslims and Arabs to the Aqsa Mosque, and said Israelis have no right in the Palestinian land.

They also hailed Palestinians in the 1948 Occupied Palestine and Occupied Jerusalem for defending the Aqsa Mosque and for siting-in at its plazas for the confrontation of settlers’ repeated incursions.

The factions called on Palestinians to take part in the pro-Aqsa march after Maghreb prayer on Monday night in Gaza City.
