Imprisoned Fatah figure Marwan Barghouti called on Tuesday for the Palestinian to continue using "general and military force" against Israel.

The Palestinian leader who was sentenced to life in prison in 2004 for his involvement in multiple deadly attacks in Israel also urged the Palestinian Authority to "put an immediate end to the security cooperation" with the government in Jerusalem, AFP cited him as saying in a letter published on the 10th anniversary of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's death.

Barghouti said the Palestinians should make such moves in order "to be faithful to the legacy of Arafat."
