PHOTOS/VIDEOS: Palestinian Violence Begins To Spread As Weekend Nears; Hamas Calls For A New Intafada



Following the US President Trump’s declaration recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the PA (Palestinian Authority) called for three days of wrath. Palestinians closed schools and stores to allow as many as possible to join the violent demonstrations.

Hamas is calling for a new intifada. According to Hamas Bureau Chief and former Gazan Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, President Trump’s declaration is nothing short of a “declaration of war”. In his Gaza address following the US declaration, Haniyeh added, “Jerusalem is under seize and its Arab and Islamic areas are being stolen”.

Haniyeh called for a Day of Rage on Friday, 20 Kislev, in response to President Trump’s declaration.

The IDF said two rockets were fired from Gaza but fell short, landing in Palestinian territory. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

The IDF said it would deploy several battalions to the West Bank ahead of Friday, while other troops have been put on alert to address “possible developments.”

Today, Thursday, 19 Kislev, the Arab violence is underway. Below are a few examples of events which occurred between noon and 3:00PM, involving hundreds of protestors:

  1. Fake news. This is what the msm wants you to think. Nothing has been affected by the average Israeli daily routine. Everything is fine.

  2. Unfortunely most of these rock throwing or demos happen on daily without being broadcasted.

    Rubber bullets are used since we are an am kodesh.

  3. When violence is directed at Israeli people or property, they should not use rubber bullets. They are engaging in terror, and this must always be met with lethal force. השכם והרגו.

  4. rt, if you think that Arabs just started rioting only now because Trump recognized Yerushalaim as Israels capital then you are bigger idiot and fool that i thought.

  5. Russian Troll – Yes, we owe a huge hakarat hatov to President Trump. The formal US recognition of Jerusalem as our capital is one of the greatest diplomatic advances we have had since the nations of the world voted Israel into existence. Are the Arabs angry about this? Of course they are. Will they react violently? Of course they will, it’s what they do. But when the dust settles we will have moved an important step forwards. Shehecheyanu!
