Palestinian factions call for 'Day of Rage' against Israeli occupation
May 29, 2017 - http://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=777388
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Palestinian Islamic and National forces in the
occupied West Bank joined together on Monday to call for a ‘Day of Rage’
on Friday, June 2, “in all Palestinian districts and around the world”
in protest against the Israeli occupation of Palestine and to demand
independence for the Palestinian people.
The various political factions convened on Monday and released a
statement, confirming their rejection of Israeli aggressions in occupied
East Jerusalem and demanded that protection be provided for Palestinian
Jerusalemites against Israeli attempts to “Judaize” the city.
<http://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=777382>In the meeting, forces
said that Israel “must be forced to commit to the UNESCO
Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa mosque,” confirmed their rejection of the
return to peace negotiations under American auspices,
<http://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=777244> and condemned US
President Donald Trump’s categorization of the Hamas movement as a
terrorist group, which the forces said wrongfully associated the
Palestinian resistance movement with terrorism.
“The US will not succeed in directing attention away from the
Palestinian cause,” the groups said, adding that “there will be no
security or peace until the end of occupation, the return of refugees to
their homelands and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.”
Forces also congratulated the Palestinian people on “the successful
support they provided to prisoners while on hunger strike,” and
congratulated Palestinian prisoners for their “victory” afterending a
40-day mass hunger strike on Saturday
<http://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=777343>, despite conflicting
reports over what demands were actually met
<http://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=777381> in negotiations with
Israeli Prison Services (IPS).
Over the course of the 40 day strike, during which time up to at least
1,600 prisoners abstained from food for a period of time, Palestinian
factions joined together on multiple occasions to call for ‘days of
rage’ <http://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=777183> against Israeli
forces, which saw clashes across the occupied West Bank and Gaza, and
several Palestinians injured with live fire.
One Palestinian was shot dead last week
<http://www.maannews.com/Content.aspx?id=777283> by an Israeli settler
during clashes that erupted after a solidarity march near the village of
Huwwara, south of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank.
