Hamas capable of igniting intifada, official says

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A senior Hamas official said Thursday that the group is capable of starting an Intifada, warning of the consequences of continuing pressure on Palestinians.

"We are capable of igniting a third Intifada which is an irrevocable right that will go off when more pressure is exerted on the Palestinian people," Hamas official Salah Bardawil said during a solidarity rally for the director of al-Aqsa TV network, who was detained in Ramallah on Wednesday.

Hamas will not sit on its hands as Israel "continues with its crimes in the West Bank," he added.

Israel's ongoing arrest campaign aims to break the resistance and prevent a new Intifada, he said, adding that "nobody can foil reconciliation because our people insist on unity and on liberating land and prisoners."

Over the past six days, Israeli troops have turned properties upside-down and arrested more than 240 Palestinians in the West Bank in the search for three Israelis who disappeared while hitchhiking on Thursday.

Over 200 of those arrested are affiliated with Hamas.
