I’ve been saying that for years.
But make no mistake, it’s not that he’s against the rockets per say, but that he’s (fatah ) just taking the opportunity for a pot shot against Hamas.

The Palestinian delegate to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) Ibrahim Khreisheh has admitted that Hamas is committing war crimes by firing rockets into Israel. Khreisheh was speaking on Palestinian television last week, in an interview translated by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute),
Responding to a question about the Palestinians’ demand to appeal to the International Criminal Court at The Hague (ICC) against Israel, Khreisheh responded: “The missiles that are now being launched against Israel, each and every missile constitutes a crime against humanity, whether it hits or missed, because it is directed at civilian targets…Therefore, targeting civilians, be it one civilian or a thousand, is considered a crime against humanity.”
Relating to Israel’s mode of operation in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge, Khreisheh states: “Please note that many of our people in Gaza appeared in TV and said that the Israeli army warned them to evacuate their homes before bombardment. In such a case, if someone is killed, the law considers it a mistake rather than intentional killing, because (the Israelis) followed the legal procedures.”
