In a March 30, 2022 interview that aired on Alghad TV (Egypt/UAE), Fatah's Secretary in Jenin, Ata Abu Rumeileh, praised Palestinian terrorist Diaa Hamarsheh, who killed five Israelis in a March 29 shooting spree in Bnei Brak, Israel. Rumeileh said that Hamarsheh had been "one of the leaders of Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades" and that the Zionists he had killed were in revenge for "our pure martyrs." He also said that there can be no peace or negotiations with the "criminal" Israeli occupation and that resistance is the only language it understands.

Ata Abu Rumeileh: "A courageous fida'i operation was carried out in the heart of Tel Aviv by one of the leaders of [Fatah's] Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Diaa Hamarsheh. He killed several Zionists in revenge for our pure martyrs.
"We say to this occupation: You cannot break our people's determination. Our people's determination draws from our belief In Allah. This resistance will continue. Our confrontation today with the occupation... There is no peace and no negotiations. The only language between us and this criminal occupation is the language of resistance."
