The Fatah movement Facebook page called for the destruction of Israel by force on Nakba Day.
The Facebook page included an image with a rifle and a map of Israel.
Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction marked “Nakba” day – signifying the “catastrophe” of the establishment of the modern state of Israel – by calling for terrorism to destroy Israel and conquer the state as the “only” way.

In a post on the official Facebook page of Fatah on May 14 in time for Nakba day, translated and revealed by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) on Sunday, a message read, “what was taken by force can only be regained by force, the 67th anniversary of the Nakba.”
The words accompanied an image showing the number 67 in Arabic numerals, with the digit 7 formed out of an image of a key indicating the “keys” to Arab homes allegedly taken by Israel, along with a rifle, and a map showing the entire state of Israel, including both sides of the 1949 Armistice lines. This, despite Fatah’s ambiguous statements indicating apparent support for a two-state solution.
