Hamas calls for attacks on Israel


Gaza : The Islamic Hamas movement, which rules the Gaza Strip, has urged its cadres to carry out attacks against Israel.

The call was in response to Israeli action at the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, Xinhua reported.

On Sunday, 30 Palestinians were injured in clashes with the Israeli police when they protested against a Jewish religious group’s attempt to enter the compound of the mosque.

Hamas leader Ahmed Abu Halabeya told a media conference Monday that Palestinian militants are urged “to carry out holly attacks” against Israel.

Hundreds of Israelis have been killed in dozens of suicide bombings carried out by Hamas since the start of the Palestinian uprising against Tel Aviv in September 2000.

“Armed resistance should hurry up to do their best and use all holy means of resistance and Jihad operations in Jerusalem and into the Zionist enemy’s depth,” Abu Halabeya said.

“I call on Arabs and Muslims all over the world to sever their diplomatic ties with the Zionist occupation in response to their attacks on the first shrine of Muslims,” he said.
