Hamas calls for escalation following Bedouin riots in the Negev

Elior Levy|
The Hamas terrorist group issued a statement on Tuesday supporting the Bedouin riots in the southern Negev, which were prompted by the Jewish National Fund's tree planting project in the area.
"The continued activity of the bulldozers and the destruction by the occupation's authorities... Confirm Israel's insistence on completing its mission - the Judaization of the occupied Palestinian Negev," Hamas said in its statement.
"We wish to strengthen the mass protest of our people within the occupied territories against the policies of Judaism and call for an escalation of the struggle aimed at establishing a Palestinian Arab identity on our occupied land."
