In response to Israeli PM Netanyahu's decision to close Al Aqsa until Sunday، a spokesman for the Hamas the resistance group turned political party calls for Palestinian 'uprising' targeting IDF and settlers.
Gaza's Hamas rulers are calling on Palestinians to attack Israeli forces in Jerusalem after Al Aqsa was closed until Sunday، this following a deadly assault there. Hamas has already staged a rally celebrating the attack.
Hamas described the closure of the site—known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary in a statement Saturday as a "religious war" and Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum called on the Palestinian "uprising" to target the Israeli army and West Bank settlers.
Israel made the rare move after three Palestinian assailants opened fire there Friday، killing two Israeli police officers before being shot dead. The attackers were devout Muslim Israeli citizens.
