Hamas and Islamic Jihad ask PLO to withdraw Israel acknowledgment

(MENAFN) Islamic Hamas movement and Islamic Jihad have demanded the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) to take back its recognition of Israel.

A spokesman of Hamas said that PLO 'should immediately withdraw its recognition of the Israeli entity' and that 'the arms of resistance are a red line that can never be overcome, dropped or to be discussed.'

The PLO has recognized Israel along with signing Oslo peace agreements in 1993 throughout an exchange of letters between Palestinian and Israeli leaders, where Israel recognized the PLO as the representative of the Palestinians.

According to the senior Islamic Jihad leader, it's necessary to go on with the Palestinian Intifada, or uprising against Israel in the Palestinian territories, which has been prompted in response to President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
