“While Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the UN Thursday urged intensive talks to attain a permanent peace accord within nine months, Hamas and Islamic Jihad officials exhorted Palestinians in the West Bank to declare a Third Intifada against Israel.
“The intifada needs to break out anew at every point of conflict,” Ahmad al-Medlal, a senior Islamic Jihad official, said at a conference in the Gaza Strip’s Jabaliya refugee camp. “Resistance is the best response to the occupation’s crimes against the al-Aqsa Mosque.” Hundreds of Gazans reportedly rallied at the camp in support of the demand, following a series of clashes between Palestinian stone throwers and Israeli security authorities around the al-Aqsa Mosque atop the Temple Mount in recent days.
Abu Obeida, the spokesman for Hamas’s armed wing, also called on Palestinians in the West Bank to restart violence against Israel. His statement came days after senior Hamas politburo member Moussa Abu Marzouk said a Third Intifada was imminent, pointing at the killings of two IDF soldiers last week as a sign of its approach.
The remarks from the Gaza-based terrorist groups came as Abbas called for an immediate negotiated resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, warning that the window for peace was getting narrower each day.
Meanwhile, approximately 150 Palestinians threw Molotov cocktails and rocks at IDF soldiers in a village outside Ramallah, Ynet reported. The soldiers fired tear gas and rubber bullets at the rioters.
The IDF spokesperson said that three Palestinians were injured in the clashes and were treated by paramedics from the Palestinian Red Crescent.”

“Hours after Hamas and Islamic Jihad officials exhorted Palestinians to declare a Third Intifada against Israel, violent demonstrations flared up Friday in several locations throughout Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, resulting in multiple Israeli injuries.
Friday marked the 13th anniversary of the outbreak of the second Palestinian Intifada against Israel’s rule in the West Bank and Gaza.
In Jerusalem, three Israeli border policemen were lightly injured by young Palestinian stone throwers during a protest near the Old City’s Damascus Gate. Thirteen Palestinians were arrested over the disturbances.
Another policeman was injured by stones during clashes in the Arab neighborhood of Shuafat. Four Palestinians were arrested in relation to that incident.
Also Friday, an IDF soldier was lightly wounded by a stone hurled at him near the village of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron. The soldier was treated by a military medical team at the spot and did not require additional medical assistance.
Dozens of Palestinians in Hebron pelted a military checkpoint with stones and lit nearby garbage canisters on fire. The IDF responded by firing rubber bullets at the protesters. At least four Palestinians were lightly injured by IDF bullets, the Associated Press reported.
Later, stone throwers targeted an Israeli vehicle near the West Bank village of Ni’lin, outside Ramallah. One Israeli citizen was injured. He was taken to Tel Hashomer hospital and treated for minor wounds.
The IDF also reported that it had detained two Palestinians carrying fire bombs near Bethlehem.
IDF soldiers also dispersed a demonstration outside the Ofer prison near Ramallah, Palestinian Ma’an News Agency reported. According to the agency, Palestinians threw rocks and burned tires outside the facility and the IDF responded with tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets. Several Palestinians suffered light injuries during the clashes.
In northern Gaza, the IDF dispersed a demonstration of Palestinians who were marching toward the Israeli border fence, reported AP. The army said troops fired tear gas to break up the crowd of around 300 protesters.
Israel, which withdrew from the Strip in 2005, considers the Hamas-run territory to be a hostile entity. It has carried out two large military operations there in response to terrorist rocket attacks in recent years. The border area has relatively quiet save for sporadic rocket fire since a weeklong Israeli military offensive last November.”
