Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, speaking Sunday to mark the
second anniversary of the deal in which the Gaza-based Palestinian terror
organization received more than 1,000 prisoners from Israel in exchange for
captive Gilad Shalit, called for a new Palestinian intifada. Haniyeh also praised
recent terror attacks on Israel in Judea and Samaria.
“We send our blessings from Gaza to our brothers in the West Bank who carried out the recent attacks against the occupier,” Haniyeh said. “Our heroic brothers in the West Bank must rise up, resume armed resistance against the occupier and embark on a popular uprising on the streets of the West Bank.”
