Joint List leader condones attacks against IDF soldiers

Speaking in an interview on Israel radio, Ayman Odeh says Palestinians have the right to resist ‘occupation,' sanctions attacks against Israeli soldiers serving in the West Bank; 'The red line for me is harming civilians.'

Joint List Chairman Ayman Odeh said Sunday that attacks on Israeli soldiers in the West Bank fall under the category of legitimate struggle against “occupation.”



“Israeli soldiers shouldn’t be in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and people under occupation have the right to fight,” Odeh told Israel Broadcasting Cooperation (Kan) Radio.

“A people under occupation has the right to struggle. The red line for me is harming civilians,” Odeh continued


The chairman of the 13-strong Knesset faction, comprised of Hadash, the United Arab List and Balad, said it was up to the Palestinian people “to choose what is legitimate and what is not.”


“I do not call on the Palestinian people how to resist, but certainly support any struggle that will not harm civilians,” Odeh said.
