According to an article that appeared in the Jerusalem Post by KHALED ABU TOAMEH, the Aksa Martyrs Brigades, threatened to strike at US and European interests in response to international sanctions on the Palestinian Authority. The threat by Abbas' Fatah party came as Palestinians marked the 58th anniversary of the nakba, or catastrophe (the secular anniversary of Israel's independence).
"We won't remain idle in the face of the siege imposed on the Palestinian people by Israel, the US and other countries," said a leaflet issued by the Aksa Martyrs Brigades in the Gaza Strip. "We will strike at the economic and civilian interests of these countries, here and abroad."
