Resistance committees: May need to return to violence

July 31, 2008 2:08 P.M. (Updated: July 31, 2008 2:08 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Resistance groups should consider a return to violence if Israel continues to violate the terms of the truce between Gaza and Israel, Mohammad Al-Baba, a leader of popular resistance committees, a breakaway Fatah faction, said on Thursday.

"The truce," he said, "was supposed to ease the suffering by ending the blockade, opening crossings and halting Israeli aggression." Most resistance groups, he said, agree that this has not been achieved yet.

The truce is now in its sixth week and Al-Baba argued that the blockade should have been totally ended by now. In the event that it continues, he said resistance fighters should be ready to "respond and be open to all options."

He also called for the Egyptian mediators of the truce to intervene in order to ensure the full implementation of the truce's terms so that there would be no need for recourse to violence.

Al-Baba concluded by saying that there was need for national unity in order to strengthen the internal front against "Israeli aggression."
