Fatah secretary in Jenin Ata Abu Rumeileh said in a September 11, 2022 show on Awda TV (Palestinian Authority) that Fatah's military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, has a "green light" to react to any "aggression" against the Palestinian people. He said that the only thing Palestinians must do is to "move towards resistance." Abu Rumeileh stated that all of Palestine is "on fire," both the territories within the 1948 borders and the 1967 borders. He added: "The occupation does not want peace."

Jenin Ata Abu Rumeileh: "We used to say that [Palestine stretches] 'from Rafah to Jenin.' Today, we say that Palestine stretches from Rafah to Al-Naqoura [Rosh HaNikra], from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River, and from Lebanon to Umm Al-Rashrash [Eilat], on the shores of the Red Sea. Today, the war is over Palestine in its entirety. Palestine is ours, and we will never surrender a single grain of its soil to these criminal murderers. Just as every occupier has left Palestine, this criminal entity will leave as well. Today, Palestine is on fire, both the part that was occupied in 1948 and the part that was occupied in 1967. The occupation does not want peace, so let the language of resistance and confrontation prevail between us.
"We, in Fatah, are saying that the resistance has a free hand. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades are free to take revenge for this pure blood, for our freeborn prisoners, for the prisoner Naser Abu Hmeid, and for all our heroic prisoners. Today, the only thing we must do is to move towards resistance. We in Fatah are saying that Fatah's military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, has the green light, and it is totally free to react to these attacks, until the aggression against our people is stopped everywhere, first and foremost in Jerusalem, the place of the Prophet Muhammad's Night Journey."
