Senior Hamas leader calls for third intifada

The demand came in response to the government’s recent decision to approve the construction of hundreds of housing units in east Jerusalem and Ma’aleh Adumim.
Ahmed Halabiyeh, director of the Jerusalem Department in Hamas, said that armed Palestinian groups, including Hamas, should initiate a confrontation with Israel over its plans to build new apartments in Jerusalem and its suburbs.
The Palestinians, he added, should resort to various methods of resistance, first and foremost ‘martyrdom operations in the heart of Israel.’
He urged Palestinians to ‘ignite a third intifada to save the Aksa Mosque and Jerusalem.’
