Muhammad Al-Lahham of the Fatah Revolutionary Council praised local Jenin terrorists who carried out deadly attacks against Israelis in Tel Aviv and Bnei Brak on a September 28, 2022 show that aired on Palestine TV. He said that the souls of the Palestinian "martyrs" must be avenged by Fatah's military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. He continued to say that the Israeli military will not be able to isolate Jenin or Gaza, rather Fatah will operate inside Israel proper as "it has done in the past." Al-Lahham further said that Dalal Mughrabi, the perpetrator of the 1978 Coastal Road Massacre, in which 39 Israelis were killed, was not the only one to impose a curfew in Tel Aviv, because there were "numerous other martyrs" who did so in West Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and elsewhere in Israel proper.

Muhammad Al-Lahham: "Twenty years have passed since the Battle of Jenin refugee camp. There was some talk about victory for the occupation. But what kind of victory was it? You demolished the Jenin Refugee camp. You killed, you assaulted, you destroyed.

"And the result? Heroes and fedayeen emerged from the ruins of those houses, who taught you painful lessons, lessons that are being taught in military academies, even though those young boys did not undergo any military training in any country. It was their patriotic conscience that prompted them to react to the crimes of the occupation. Raad Hazem, Diaa Hamarsheh [who carried out attacks in Israel], beautiful 'crescents' like Ibrahim Al-Nabulsi [who was killed by Israeli security forces], and all the other beautiful names in Palestine taught you lesson after lesson.


"Fatah does not made do with condemnations alone. Fatah emphasizes that vengeance must be wreaked upon the occupation, and that the souls of the martyrs must be avenged by [Fatah's] military wings, and specifically the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades. When the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades promise something, they keep their promise.

"This is exactly what they did, and they imposed a curfew on Tel Aviv. If their occupation's chief of staff believes that he can isolate Jenin – the refugee camp, the city, the village, or anywhere else – then he is wrong. If he believes that he can isolate the Gaza Strip – Fatah will not allow him to do so. [Fatah will respond] inside [Israel], like it has done in the past. If they think that the eternal martyr Dalal Mughrabi imposed a curfew in 1978 in Tel Aviv, and that was it – well, no, there were numerous other martyrs who imposed curfews on the streets of West Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and other places deep inside that entity."
