A video posted online shows dozens of veiled men taking part in a march marking 48 years since Fatah's inception. The men are seen marching at the Dheisheh refugee camp in Bethlehem carrying knives, axes, clubs and rifles.


Two men were also seen carrying a rocket model. Palestinian security forces were not present at the scene.

The march was a rare sight in the West Bank which has seen very few Fatah rallies in the past few years.


It is possible that the Palestinian security forces were aware of the march but decided to "turn a blind eye." In the past, the forces prevented similar rallies both by Fatah and Hamas.

Watch Fatah march in Bethlehem

The rally was held in the backdrop of clashes in the Palestinian village of Tamoun, south of Jenin. A Border Guard undercover unit entered the village on Tuesday with the purpose of arresting a terrorist cell.


The military said that the troops entered the village in search of two Palestinian terrorists. What began as a covert operation by the Mistaarvim Unit, soon became a wide-scale raid involving Shin Bet officers and auxiliary forces, and stretching across some 15 building.


The security forces' canvass for a second person of interest sparked violent riots that lasted several hours. The troops used crowd-control measures to contain the riot. Two IDF soldiers were lightly wounded and some eight Palestinians were injured as well.
