"The Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip is institutionalized and plotted early," said Fatah spokesperson Fayiz Abu Aita.
"The catalyst behind this is for the Israeli government to get past its political crisis, and to thwart the Palestinian reconciliation agreement,"
Abu Aita said in a statement.
He reiterated that the Palestinian Authority would go ahead with its political struggle against occupation at an international level.
“The pure Palestinian blood being shed in the beloved Gaza Strip requires that we all fight a battle united against occupation,” he added.
Fatah's leadership in Gaza, meanwhile, condemned the attacks and described Israel's ongoing operations as a "massacre against children, women and the elderly."
Fatah leader Abdullah Abu Samhadana said the "aggression will drag the region to an explosion."
He stressed that Benjamin Netanyahu's government was escalating violance "after seeing an opportunity to escape from its internal crises, especially with the growing protest movement."
He added that "the occupation seeks to export this crisis" to Gaza.
Expect similar events up until September, when Netanyahu will use security concerns as a pretext to stop the Ramallah leadership's drive for recognition of statehood at the UN, he added.
