The Joint Room of Palestinian Resistance Factions

Our Great Palestinian people,

The Israeli occupation forces committed a new crime that added to its long history of atrocities against our innocent people wherever they are. The Israeli occupation snipers shot dead 4 Peaceful protesters who took part in the Great Return March last Friday, 21/12/2018, tens were critically injured near the Gaza separation fence. After the intensive investigation of this crime, it was revealed that all the martyrs were targeted 300-600 meters of the separation fence. In addition, most of the injuries were 150-300 meters, which confirms that there is a deliberate intention to snipe all the martyrs and wounded, without causing any threat to the Israeli occupation soldiers. On the contrary, they were demonstrating in a purely peaceful way.    

What happened last Friday is a crime that is integrated with elements, and a clear disregard of our people's souls. Unfortunately, the unjust world, especially the West, just watched as peaceful demonstrators were brutally killed in a cold blood. However, it mobilizes all energies to serve the occupation and to criminalize the Palestinian resistance when defending its people.

Accordingly, the Joint Operation's Room asserts the following:

- Firstly, these crimes against our innocent people have crossed all the red lines and our resistance will not stand empty-handed.

-Secondly, when it comes to violating our dignity and underestimating our sufferings, we will not hesitate to defend our people's rights.

- Thirdly, We declare that next Friday will be a decisive day to test the behavior and the intentions of the Israeli occupation towards our people during the Great Return March. We are adamant to protect our Palestinian people and we have the appropriate response which suits the Israeli occupation's behavior on the ground.
