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.
