Fatah-aligned Brigades condemn Israeli arrest campaign in West Bank

Khan Younis -Ma'an - The Ahmad Abu Ar-Rish Brigades, a Fatah affiliated military group, warned Saturday of the continued Israeli attacks carried out against resistance fighters in the West Bank.

The Brigades released a statement on Saturday condemning the continued arrest of Palestinian fighters and activists across the West Bank. On Friday 20 members from one Fatah-affiliated family were detained in Al-E'bayat village east Bethlehem, some of whom were employed with the Palestinian Authority (PA) security services.

"The Brigades will not stand with their hands folded in front of attacks against the Palestinian West Bank, repeated invasions and arrests of resistance fighters," the statement read.

The Brigades affirmed that they would adhere to the truce in the face of such Israeli practices, and called on other factions to follow suit. "Reassessing the truce will only bring more violations and attacks against the Palestinians," they said.

They reiterated, however, their right to defend their lives and their land against Israeli aggression, and warned Israel against recent rumblings about a fresh invasion into the Gaza Strip. Any such action, they said, would result in harsh consequences.
