Ahmed Bahar, first deputy speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, has said that “with the start of the new year, al-Quds intifada has regained its momentum following the heroic Jerusalem operation.”
This came in a telephone conversation on Monday with the family of martyr Fadi al-Qunbar, who carried out Sunday’s vehicle-ramming operation in Occupied Jerusalem.
Bahar also said that all lawmakers in Gaza and the Palestinians at home and abroad are proud of martyr Qunbar and the sacrifice he made for the sake of his own people.
He described the ramming operation as “a natural response to Israel’s crimes against the Jerusalemite citizens and its ongoing violations in the West Bank against humans, trees, and the Islamic and Christian holy sites.”
The lawmaker expressed hope that the Palestinian people and their resistance would maintain the momentum which the intifada gained this year and continue carrying out such operations as part of their right to defend themselves against the aggression of Israeli soldiers and settlers.
