In a March 23, 2022 interview on Mayadeen TV (Lebanon), Palestinian politician Jamal Al-Huwail, a member of Fatah's Revolutionary Council, praised the March 22 stabbing attack in Beersheba, Israel, in which four Israeli civilians were killed and several wounded. He said that Israelis call such attackers "lone wolves," but that Palestinians call them "lone predatory lions." Al-Huwail also said that the Zionists fear that such attacks will serve as a model and spread to other districts. In addition, he said that the fact that this attack took place within Israel's 1948 borders in "the very heart of this criminal Zionist occupation" is significant because it proves that in the consciousness of the Palestinian people, "Palestine still stretches from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea," despite the 70-year "occupation."
Jamal Al-Huwail: "I believe that the complex and complicated [Beersheba stabbing] attack sounded the alarm of this criminal Zionist occupation particularly with regards to attacks by individuals, who the occupation calls 'lone wolves.' We, however, call them 'lone predatory lions,' who think, plan, and execute on their own.
"So there is a Zionist complex about security regarding such attacks. [They fear] that this operation by Mahammad Abu al-Qi'an will serve as a model and spread elsewhere. So this attack is significant, because of the identity of the attacker and the location where it took place, which is the very heart of this criminal Zionist occupation.
"This indicates that even though this occupation has existed for more than 70 years on this land that was occupied in 1948, in the consciousness of our Palestinian people, Palestine still stretches from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea."
