(Israel Hayom via JNS) Palestinian terrorist factions have threatened to renew hostilities against Israel in response to Israeli forces killing Palestinian terror cell leader Ibrahim Nabulsi in Nablus.
“The Zionist occupation continues its crimes against the Palestinian people, and is making a new, foolish mistake in its aggression in the city of Nablus,” Palestinian Islamic Jihad said in a statement.
A ceasefire was reached between Israel and the Gaza-based terror group eaerlier in the week, bringing to a close three days of fighting that saw some 1,000 rockets launched at Israel.
Israel’s “aggression” in Nablus “demands a popular and military uprising from every Palestinian, and starting today there is no room for excuses,” said a spokesman for PIJ in Judea and Samaria.
“The occupation does not distinguish between one faction and another and has made the entire Palestinian people its target. This demands that we unite and respond to these crimes,” the spokesman continued.
The raid that resulted in Nabulsi’s killing constituted “a serious escalation” that “demands we make a true, strong stand to stop the aggression,” said the spokesman.
