AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Hamas spokesman Hazem Qasem said the growing resistance operations in the occupied Palestinian territories confirm that young Palestinians are involved in an ongoing intifada (uprising) against the Israeli occupation state.
“Such escalating operations, like the one that occurred at dawn in the occupied West Bank, reflect the failure of the occupation army to prevent Palestinians from continuing their resistance despite assassinations and arrests,” he said. spokesman Qasem said in a press release on Tuesday.
The spokesperson described the Palestinian resistance operations as “a natural response to the occupation and its aggressive practices that target Palestinian land and holy sites.”
The Hebrew-language news site, Ynet, reported that Palestinian gunmen opened fire at dawn today towards an Israeli settlement in southern Tulkarem.
In the past two weeks, 11 Israelis have been killed in resistance operations in the cities of Beersheba, Hadera and Bnei Brak.
