Call from PFLP, DFLP and Islamic Jihad on Hamas and Fatah
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), and Islamic Jihad expressed their concerns over the political and military escalation between the two rivals, saying that the fighting impedes Palestinian and Arab efforts to end the state of division in the Palestinian territories.

The statement also condemned the groups' mutual accusatory language, claiming that it has contributed to deteriorating conditions in the Palestinian community.

The factions implored Hamas and Fatah to respect the right of each group to hold celebrations, saying that Hamas should be allowed to commemorate their anniversary in the West Bank, and that Fatah should be able to organize similar festivities in the Gaza Strip unimpeded.
