Aqabat Jaber Brigade declares beginning of days of rage against IOF
The Resistance faction in Areeha calls on Palestinians to head to points of contact with the IOF and confront the occupation.
The Aqabat Jaber refugee camp Brigade of the Ezzeddine Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas Resistance movement in Areeha, announced on Sunday the start of the days of rage, due to the ongoing restrictions and siege imposed by the Israeli occupation forces on the city for eight days in a row so far.
Areeha has been under an ongoing Israeli siege with military checkpoints and cement blocks erected since last Saturday at all entrances to the city.
In a statement published on their Telegram channel, the Brigade said that the days of rage began at 8 pm Sunday evening and will continue for three days.
The statement continued, "Let us all make them days of fire against the occupation," calling on the people of the neighboring villages to "pour out their anger against the occupation" and head to the points of contact with IOF to confront the occupation.
The Brigade urged the youths of Aqabat Jaber camp to immediately set fire to whatever tires they have available in the streets and rooftops, apologizing in advance to the Palestinian citizens for any harm.
The Israeli occupation forces had surrounded a home in Aqabat Jaber and shelled it, claiming that one of its residents had carried out a shooting that targeted a restaurant near the Dead Sea last week.

Yedioth Ahronoth's military affairs correspondent revealed that dozens of Resistance fighters were confronting the Israeli occupation special force that infiltrated the city, which was considered the quietest in the occupied West Bank, becoming a surprising factor to the Israeli military and security establishments.
Palestinian media reported on Saturday that a number of Palestinians were wounded by Israeli occupation gunfire in Aqabat Jaber camp in Areeha, adding that Resistance fighters were confronting occupation forces besieging a house in the area.
The Israeli occupation forces withdrew their military vehicles from the refugee camp hours after the failed military operation that saw nine Palestinians injured, two of whom sustained serious wounds.
Earlier this week, the Israeli occupation forces announced that a shooting took place near a restaurant at the "Almog Junction" near the city of Areeha in the occupied West Bank.
