Terror groups call for 3rd intifada

Islamic Jihad, PRC say events in Akko will lead to 'Palestinian attack from within', call on all Palestinians to take to streets in solidarity with Akko Arabs

The Islamic Jihad movement called on Friday for Palestinians to take to the streets in solidarity with the Arabs of Akko and Arabs in Israel, in general, "due to the racist aggression and brutality of the occupation and the bullying of the settlers."


"The extreme Jewish attacks and the crimes of the settlers during recent days are a manifestation of the brutality of the occupation and its racism, in Akko and in other Palestinian villages in occupied Palestine," said the group's spokesman Walid Hilam.


He called on Akko's Arab residents to continue to fight and remain unified in the fact of aggressive behavior and to hold on to their lands in the face of an alleged Zionist plot to relocate them, as occurred in 1948.


"What is happening is a predecessor to a third intifada, which the Palestinians living within Palestine that has been occupied since 1948 will lead, because of the consistent aggression against them, their homes and their lands and the policy that keeps them oppressed," he said.


Abu Abir, the spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), also referred to the riots in Akko, saying that "the attacks on Palestinians in Akko demonstrate the distress of the Zionists and demonstrate that the next battle will be across all areas of Palestine."


"This struggle shows that Palestine that was conquered in 1948 was never separate from the Palestine of 1967. We are all one people, we are all against the occupation, and we are all fighting to free Palestine. All of Palestine," he added.
