Hebron - New Palestinian Group Declares 3rd Intifada
Hebron - Masked men belonging to various Palestinian factions announced in Hebron on Saturday the establishment of the Brigades of National Unity and the beginning of a third intifada against Israel.
In a video posted on several Palestinian websites, a spokesman for the new group said it consisted of members of Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
The spokesman said that although his group backed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbasâ€™s statehood bid at the UN, â€śWe will not give up one inch of the land of Palestine, from the river to the sea.â€ť
He said the group would â€śpursue our struggle until we expel the occupation and liberate all Palestine.â€ť
The spokesman said that the new group had decided to launch the third intifada â€śfrom the heart of Hebron so that it could extend to all Palestine.â€ť
The spokesman also threatened to kidnap IDF soldiers and kill Israelis if Israel arrested or killed Palestinians.
â€śWe will strike at you with an iron fist with full force if you donâ€™t stop your aggression against the Palestinian people,â€ť the masked man threatened.
The spokesman demanded that Israel remove all checkpoints and barriers in the West Bank, release all Palestinians from Israeli prisons, withdraw fully from Palestinian territories, release funds belonging to the PA government and reopen all the border crossings.
