GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas called Thursday upon all Palestinians to engage in “the revolution of Shufat” with every possible tool in their power to aid the resistance.
Hamas said in a statement that “our people in occupied Jerusalem started a huge revolution against the Israeli occupation and settlers.”
Fawzi Barhoum said that “the revolution of Shufat” and its intifada show that all the violations, suppression and intimidation “cannot keep the Palestinians down” but only makes them hold onto their rights and resist.
The military wing of Hamas, the al-Qassam Brigades, also said the battle with Israel was still "wide open."
Spokesman for the brigades Abu Obeida said in a news conference in Gaza City that that any “foolish move” by Israel will be responded to with targeting settlements with rockets.
Abu Obeida added that “we smell the betrayal and escalation of the occupation, which requires us to be completely prepared for any new confrontation.”
He highlighted that the “resistance stands on a firm basis and the occupation will not be able to control the proceedings of the next battle.”
