The Palestinians have not abandoned the option of armed struggle against Israel, a top Fatah official in the West Bank said Monday.

Mahmoud Aloul, member of the Fatah Central Committee and former Palestinian Authority governor of Nablus, said that although the Palestinians have agreed to launch a "popular resistance against occupation, no one has dropped the armed resistance from his dictionary."

Aloul's comments were made during an interview with the private Watan TV station in the West Bank. He pointed out that Fatah's political program has reaffirmed that "resistance is a legitimate right to resist the occupation."
