Jailed Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti called for a mass march against the Israeli "occupation" on June 5, according to reports Sunday.

Barghouti, who is currently serving life sentences in Israel for involvement in several terrorist attacks, made the comments last week during an interview with the Palestinian Authoritiy's official newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.

He reportedly urged people to come from all over the world to participate in the proposed march, which he described as non-violent, and suggested the participants use slogans like "people want the end of the occupation" and "freedom, return, and independence.
