Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- The Islamic Jihad movement has said that it will not allow the occupation state to compromise Al Aqsa mosque. It added that it will confront the Israeli settlers’ provocations with full force.
“The occupation will have a foothold [in Al Aqsa]”, the resistance movement said in a statement issued today.
“The settlers’ raid today puts us before a real test. We either risk our lives defending our holy places… or we surrender.”
“It is impossible for us to accept the second choice.”
The movement also called on native Palestinians across Palestine to flock towards Al Aqsa mosque.
Yesterday, the Israeli army increased its forces in the West Bank and settlements near Gaza. It also declared high alert in fear of the resistance to retaliate against Jerusalem’s settlers’ raid.
Gaza (QNN)- Addressing QNN, the member of the political bureau of Hamas, Suheil Al Hindi, on Tuesday stressed that the resistance continues to hold the view that it has imposed in the latest battle with the occupation state, which is that Jerusalem represents the red line.
Al Hindi told QNN, commenting on the Israeli settlers’ raid, that the enemy “should understand this equation and not get involved in costly adventures”.
“We don’t seek war and blood but if a war has been imposed on us, we will fight with with full force”, he added.
“The Israeli government, led by Bennett, is a cabinet of war. It only speaks the language of killing”, he added.
“The resistance has clearly stated that Jerusalem is a red line and we cannot level it alone”.
Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- As thousands of Israeli settlers went out to the streets in Jerusalem settlers raid, Israeli forces brutally attacked native Palestinians, wounding five and arresting six others.
Shortly before the raid, Israeli forces cracked down on Palestinians in Bab Al Amoud courtyard, forcing them to empty the area for settlers only.
The Red Crescent, meanwhile, announced that five Palestinians have been shot near the old city of Jerusalem. Three of them have been wounded with rubber-coated metal bullets while two others got wounded with beating and stun bombs.
In the same vein, local sources said Israeli forces arrested six young men in Jerusalem after assaulting them. Bab Al Amoud has been turned into a closed military zone.
In order to allow settlers to celebrate and dance in the holy city, Israeli forces forced Palestinian shop owners in the old city to close their shops earlier today.
Israeli settlers are supposed to march from Al Anbiya’ street towards Bab Al Amoud area, where they will perform their dances. They will head towards the Islamic quarter, Bab Al Khalil, then finally Al Magharbeh neighborhood.
Israeli authorities said they deployed over 2500 policemen to protect the settlers.
On the other hand, resistance factions stressed that they will not stand idly by watching the Israeli violations in the holy city.
Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- The Israeli extremist rabbi Yehuda Glick broke into Al Aqsa mosque under the protection of the Israeli police this morning.
Meanwhile, protected by police, groups of Israeli fanatics broke into the holy mosque from the Magharbeh gate.
The Israeli police started allowing settlers’ raids in 2003 despite the rejection of Jerusalem’s Islamic Waqf.
Glick’s raid comes while thousands of Jewish fanatics are preparing for massive provocative marches throughout the holy city.
Extremist settlers groups will participate in “Death for Arabs” marches and will gather at Bab Al Amoud yard. They will walk in a provocative massive march throughout the eastern part of Jerusalem to celebrate its occupation and annexation.
On the other side, factions called on Palestinians to gather in Bab AlAmoud and Al Aqsa mosque to protect them.
The resistance had warned Israeli authorities of any violations in Al Aqsa or the Sheikh Jarrah.
Last month, the same settlers’ raid in addition to Israeli violations throughout the holy city sparked tensions across Palestine.
A round of Israeli airstrikes and resistance missiles was triggered following Israeli violations, pushing ‘Israel’ to cancel the settlers’ provocative raid.
Yesterday, the occupation state declared high-alert in fear of any retaliation by the resistance.
Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- The Red Crescent said that the number of native Palestinians injures d in the Israeli attacks in Jerusalem rose to 27. Four of the injuries have been taken to hospitals.
Israeli forces deployed in the holy city and attacked Palestinians, while on the other side protected settlers.
Israeli Jewish fanatics spread in the holy city, holding Israeli flags and chanting racist slogans. The slogans included incites against Palestinians and Arabs and insults against the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad peace be upon him.
Israeli forces attacked journalists in Bab Al Amoud, trying to prevent them from covering the Israeli provocations.
Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Hamas said on Sunday that it does not count on any change in the Israeli governments as “all Israeli governments agree on the policy of murdering Palestinians and depriving them of their rights”.
The spokesperson for Hamas Sami Abu Zohri also said that “the failure of Benjamin Netanyahu is one of the consequences of the victory of the resistance in Jerusalem’s sword battle”.
Meanwhile, Yousef Hasayneh, members of the IJ’s political bureau said the new more extremist government would trigger tensions. He said that the aggressive policies against the Palestinian people, especially regarding settlement, would raise further tensions.
Tareq Silmi, IJ’s spokesperson, said ‘Israel’ is ruled by a security and military system, which will not stop terrorizing Palestinians. He added that no one counts on changes of faces in the occupation state.
Mustafa Al-Barghouthi, Secretary-General of the Palestinian Initiative movement, said the new Israeli government is even more extreme. He said Neftali’s government is a government of settlement and racism and it is even more extreme than Netanyahu’s.
Barghouthi cited Neftali as stressing that he will support settlement expansion in ‘C’ area. Neftali had also expressed his rejection of establishing a Palestinian State.
“We must confront this racism government by popular resistance and sanctions”, Barghouti said. “No one should allow himself to even have talks with it”.
In the same vein, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the Israeli policies will not change. “They will not change if they do not get worse”, The Ministry said. “Especially that the new leaders were even farther right in comparison to Netanyahu.”
Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- An Israeli undercover Special Forces last night kidnapped three Palestinians in the neighbourhood in occupied Jerusalem, local sources said.
The undercover unit, known as Mista’arvim, were assaulting Rami Salaheddine, 21, Lo’ai Kiswani, 22, and Abdullah Hadra, 25, and threatening them at gunpoint, before they kidnapped them.
The three had their hands tied to the back and taken to an unknown destination by the attacking force.
In recent weeks and months, Israel’s undercover Special Forces units have increased their activities against the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank. The units are responsible for the arrest and assassination of Palestinian resistance members wanted by the Israeli occupation authorities.
Last April, Israeli media reported about the establishment of a new Israeli police undercover unit intended to operate exclusively amongst the Palestinian population.
Adalah, the Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, described the decision as being racist, illegal, and unprecedented in democracies around the world.
The term Mista’arvim is derived from the Arabic word Musta’rib, meaning a non-Arab wanting to integrate with the Arabs; Musta’ribeen is the plural.
Members of these units are trained to know the Palestinian area in which they operate, the dialects spoken there and the names of well-known families. This helps them when they infiltrate a Palestinian town, either to gather intelligence, to arrest wanted persons or, sometimes, to carry out assassinations.
Members of the units use a number of means to carry out their tasks. They impersonate Arab individuals, join in alongside protestors and impersonate journalists to kill, arrest or take pictures of their targets.
They graduate from ordinary army units after passing out from a long and difficult training programme. Priority is given to those with Middle Eastern features, especially those with a darker skin who look like Arabs.
The Musta’ribeen will dress in the same style as the residents of the area of operation, either wearing locally made clothing or traditional Arab clothes.
