In a January 17, 2023 show on Awda TV (Palestinian Authority), Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muhammad Al-Lahham praised Palestinian terrorists Raad Hazem and Diaa Hamarsheh, as well as the 2001 PFLP assassination of Israel's Minister of Tourism Rehavam Ze'evi. He said that the Palestinians are nearing a stage in which there will be more blood and more confrontation, and he stated that Fatah is capable of retaliating against all of the "occupation's crimes." He also said that young Fatah men and women are ready to set out and sacrifice themselves in order to "impose a curfew" on Tel Aviv and in the settlements.

Muhammad Al-Lahham: "We are drawing near a stage of much more blood, clashes, and confrontation. In the words of president Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas] from a few weeks ago: 'We have nothing but Allah and the arms of our people.'

"The arms of our people are not short. The long arm of our people got to [Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam] Ze'evi, the long arm of our people got to the Mossad agents in Cyprus, and they got to the streets of Tel Aviv, roamed there, and imposed a curfew. Raad Hazem, Diaa Hamarsheh [who carried out attacks in Israel], and other heroes... [Our peoples'] long arm can retaliate for all the occupation's crimes.


"Fatah's fedayeen — the young men and women of Fatah — do not wait for the leaders to tell them to carry out an attack or a self-sacrificing operation. They set out to fight and to sacrifice themselves, and they are imposing curfews in Tel Aviv and in the settlements, armed with the philosophy and ideology of Fatah to which they affiliate."
