The leader of the Fatah-affiliated Tanzim terror group said that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who also leads the Fatah faction, is incapable of controlling the recent wave of violence. and that he expects attacks will continue.
“Neither [Abbas] nor anyone else can control this situation as long as [Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu continues to give his soldiers permission to kill people and act in the Al-Aqsa mosque,” Adnan Ghaith, the head of Jerusalem Tanzim, told Israeli media on Thursday.
Ghaith, therefore, expects that Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis will continue.
“No one can control what is happening, and the situation is going to get worse,” he said.
Loyal to Abbas, the Tanzim terror group gained notoriety during the Palestinians’ second intifada. Israeli officials have blamed Tanzim for sparking recent protests in the West Bank. But the terror group has apparently not yet gotten physically involved in the current wave of violence.
