The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, the armed wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, issued a letter to the masses of our people, the resistance, and the brave, steadfast Palestinian people:
The occupation established by the Zionist enemy is still making every effort to subjugate our people and to break the resistance. The resistance has risen from its ongoing crimes targeting our land, our people, our existence, and our Palestinian identity, and its ongoing escalation of crimes that only add to the horrific record of the criminal leaders of the occupation. In response, it is necessary to confront and challenge this occupation with a dynamic Palestinian resistance. The occupation allegedly seeks for ways to establish an alleged and flimsy calm to avoid being held accountable for the lives of the martyrs and the blood shed on the soil of our homeland. The leaders of the occupation are well aware that such a calm is a mere illusion, soon to be dismissed with a severe escalation planned in advance – to be followed once again by calm.
We pledge that our resistance will not let the blood of our martyrs and our wounded flow freely without the occupation paying for its crimes, and the occupier’s mightiest weapons will not be able to break the resistance and steadfastness of our people. Today, we speak with great strength that the enemy must reckon with the calculations of its own losses, as our people have great determination to survive and achieve either victory or martyrdom. We salute the masses of our people, for your continuing steadfastness, resistance, and countless sacrifices. We salute the heroes of the resistance from all factions and our brave fighters in the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades.
