GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A member of the leftist Palestinian People's Party on Friday called for people in Gaza to be "armed" as much as possible in order to confront the Israeli ground offensive and "empower the resistance against the offensive."

Nafiz Ghneim said in a statement that the parties of the Palestinian resistance, especially the Hamas-affiliated al-Qassam Brigades should recruit as many Palestinians as they could to help fight the Israeli ground assault that began late Thursday.

Ghneim called upon Gazans to stay as long as they could in their houses in order to prevent Israel from achieving the goals of the ground offensive.

Ghneim also called on all Palestinian parties to continue to fight for the national good and the protection of people.
