IT’S OFFICIALLY HERE: HAMAS DECLARES INTIFADA AS ‘PALESTINIAN’ TERRORISM SURGES THROUGHOUT ISRAEL
Hamas terror chief Ismail Haniyeh declared Friday that Palestinians are engaged in an “intifada” against the State of Israel, urging fellow jihadis to continue their bloodthirsty campaign against Israel’s Jews.
A full-scale intifada, or Palestinian “uprising,” has occurred twice during the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. During the time periods when both Intifadas broke out (1987-1993 and 2000-2005), thousands of people lost their lives due to the Palestinian terror uprisings.
“We are calling for the strengthening and increasing of the intifada… It is the only path that will lead to liberation,” Haniyeh said during prayers at a mosque in Gaza.
“Gaza will fulfil its role in the Jerusalem intifada and it is more than ready for confrontation,” he threatened, according to the Times of Israel.
Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, has not at this time employed the tactics seen in their summer 2014 war against Israel, when the militant group launched thousands of rockets towards Israeli population centers. At the moment, the outfit has instead focused on inciting Palestinians to hunt down Jews in Israel, instead of launching rockets from Gaza.
Haniyeh’s speech was coupled with a major flare-up on the Israel-Gaza border Friday, when hundreds of Palestinians rioters hurled rocks at Israeli troops stationed on their side of the dividing line. Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers responded by firing at the rioters.
IDF troops “fired at the main instigators in order to halt their advance and disperse the riot,” an Israeli military spokeswoman told the Jerusalem Post.
