In a statement to, Barghouthi said that Israel’s attempt to curb the Intifada was to no avail, stressing that “the Intifada will continue.” 

“Israeli leaders,” the secretary said, “ have to realize that the only solution to the Intifada is the [Israeli] withdrawal from all Palestinian territories.” 

The Fateh leader had stressed in several TV interviews the need for the continuation of the Intifada until the embodiment of Palestinian statehood.
