BEIRUT, (PIC)– The Alliance of Palestinian Forces in Lebanon denounced remarks by PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas regarding the right of return, and his rejection of a third Intifada.
It said in a press statement: “The remarks made by Abbas only reflect his position, and do not represent the Palestinian people and the national and Islamic factions.”
The Alliance affirmed its adherence to the right of return of Palestinian refugees “to their hometown; Palestine” noting that neither Abbas nor any other party or organization have the right to surrender this right.
The Alliance also confirmed its adherence to armed resistance as a strategic option for the Palestinian people and as a natural right to confront the Israeli occupation and liberate all the Palestinian territories.
The Alliance warned of what it called, “continuation of making concessions to the Zionist enemy,” noting that the negotiations and compromises have failed throughout 21 years. Palestinians can only regain their rights through resistance, it added.
