New Intifada? PLO Plans to ‘Disengage’ From Israel and Return to ‘Popular Resistance’, Israel Preps for ‘Large-Scale’ Gaza Incursion


By Gavriel Queenann – “Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) officials said Friday their decision to return to ‘popular resistance’ is aimed at ‘disengaging’ from Israel.

PLO Executive Committee member Tayseer Khalid said the new unified Fatah-Hamas strategy will be based on ‘popular resistance’ which will spread into PA enclaves in Judea and Samaria.

Although the ceasefire that ended Operation Cast Lead has largely held, there has been occasional fire, including this week… The head of Israel’s Southern Brigade said yesterday that preparations for another ‘large-scale’ Israeli incursion into Gaza are underway ‘to renew our deterrence,’ ….” Read more.
