MoA—Yesterday and overnight anti-Arab violence and Palestinian protests within Israel continued as new unrest unfolded in the West Bank where the occupation army killed at least 10 Palestinians.
Protesters in Jordan arrived at the border to the West Bank and tried to break through the border fence. Jordanian riot police held them back.
At the Lebanese border to Israel protesters crossed over from Lebanon into a disputed area when Israeli forces fired at them. One Lebanese man was killed and another wounded. Such deaths usually trigger the eye-for-an-eye rule that governs the relation between Hizbullah and the Israeli army. Hizbullah could have used the incident to escalate but didn’t.
Also yesterday Hizbullah’s Deputy Secretary General Naim Qassem visited Hamas and Islamic Jihad leadership in Lebanon. This is highly significant as Hamas (being Muslim Brotherhood, an organization historically controlled by Western intel agencies—Ed) had been on the wrong side of the war in Syria.
