A day after the murder
of Sgt. Tomer Hazan
and as news surfaced of the death
of an IDF
soldier in a Hebron shooting attack, Hamas
' deputy political bureau chief Moussa Abu Marzouk posted a message in which he predicted that the Palestinians are on the brink of a new intifada.
"We are facing a political failure for the Palestinian Authority and the beginning of a new popular intifada against Israel,"
he wrote on his Facebook page. "John Kerry's $4 million economic plan will not save the day."
Marzouk mentioned recent operations in refugee camps in Qalandiya
which resulted in Palestinian deaths,
demonstrations against Palestinian security forces and the resumption of peace talks with Israel.
The Hamas official further noted the capture of a terrorist cell that planned a terror attack in Jerusalem and attempts to harm settlers and soldiers.
Palestinian groups are circulating fliers calling for a "day of rage" on Friday to mark the 13th anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Intifada.
