Hamas calls on Palestinians to mobilize, confront occupation
The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas calls on Palestinians to confront and resist the Israeli forces and settlers during the last ten days of Ramadan.
Palestinian resistance Hamas has urged Palestinians to congregate at occupied Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque and resist the Israeli occupation during the last ten days of Ramadan.
"The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas calls on all Palestinians everywhere to confront the Israeli occupation and Israeli colonial settlers and visit and stay at the Al-Aqsa Mosque throughout the last ten days of the Muslim holy month in defense of occupied Al-Quds and the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Palestinian worshippers there," Hamas said in a press statement on Friday.
Dozens of Palestinians were injured in "fending off the savage raid by Israeli occupation forces on Al-Aqsa" beginning Friday, according to the statement, which urged Palestinians to halt additional Israeli violence.
"Palestinian unity and resistance in confronting the Israeli occupation and Israeli colonial settlers will deter them from implementing their malicious schemes targeting occupied Al-Quds and the Al-Aqsa Mosque," the statement read.
According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, at least 45 Palestinians were injured in occupied Al-Quds on Friday after police sprayed tear gas at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, where Israeli forces and settlers have been attacking Palestinian worshippers.
That was the second attack by the occupation in two weeks at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest place in Islam, where thousands of Muslims congregate for prayer every Friday.
Israeli planes targeted a suspected weapons storage of the Hamas organization in the Gaza Strip last Tuesday, with no injuries reported.
