Third Intifada anticipated to bypass rules of engagement: PFLP
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine's (PFLP) Secretary-General, Ahmad Sa'adat, says that the Israeli occupation's practices will only boost the determination of the Palestinian people to confront it.
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) Secretary-General, Ahmad Sa'adat, stated that confrontations and the occupation's practices in the occupied West Bank will inevitably spark a Third Intifada (uprising).
According to Sa'adat, as reported by Press TV, the upcoming intifada will not resemble the two previous ones. In fact, he noted that the anticipated intifada will be fully-fledged in that it will not be limited by the rules previously-set rules of engagement, but rather it will result in the breakdown of law and order.
It is worth reminding that the First Intifada was initiated on December 8, 1987, when Palestinians sacrificed and broke the rules of engagement for the first time in an attempt to not only defend their land, principles, and sanctities but also to liberate their land and people. In the First Intifada, Palestinians wrote a new, inspiring history with their blood and sacrifices for all generations to come.

The Second Intifada began on September 28, 2000, and was known as the Al-Aqsa Intifada. Today a Third Intifada is beginning to emerge according to a number of Resistance leaders as well as by Israeli admission.

Israeli media: Recent operations in West Bank 'new kind of Intifada'
Israeli media confirmed that "what we have been witnessing in recent months in the West Bank is a 'new kind of Intifada' that is different from the Intifada of the 80s and the Second Intifada, and is characterized by a lot of violence against the army."
Israeli Channel 13's military affairs commentator, Alon Ben-David, commented saying, "I hear statements about what we have been seeing in recent months, saying it is a new kind of uprising that is different from what we witnessed in the 80s and in the year 2000, and what distinguishes it is a lot of violence directed against the Israeli army in every arrest operation."
Ben-David added, "This is not only in Jenin and Nablus; there are also blocks of stones and mass shooting at the Israeli soldiers by young men who do not belong to any organization, therefore the hesitation now. Ahead the eve of the October holidays, we might possibly intensify pressure and carry out more arrests, or on the contrary, take a step back and limit confrontation."

Israeli Kan channel's military affairs commentator, Roi Sharon, said, "In the security establishment, they estimate that this escalation will further increase, with more shootings and more local armed groups, and what started in the Jenin area has spread towards Nablus and has expanded today to the Jordan Valley."
New status quo emerging in Palestinian areas
Arab affairs commentator on Israeli Channel 13, Hezi Simantov, said, "What is happening in the northern West Bank in the governorates of Nablus and Jenin is a pattern that has become a reality, and this pattern is represented by armed groups carrying out shooting attacks against Israelis, and the group consists of two or three, who take the weapon and plan to carry out an operation."
He continued, "These people are not sent by a specific organization. Perhaps they sympathize with Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, Fatah, etc. Every entry of the Israeli army into the Palestinian areas to carry out an arrest operation is accompanied by live fire. This is a disturbing, alarming new status quo that threatens to develop more and more in the Palestinian territories."
