Hamas chief praises West Bank 'resistance' after deadly attacks

Hamas chief praises West Bank 'resistance' after deadly attacks

Haniyeh's remarks came in a speech during a festival organized by Hamas in the Gaza City to celebrate the 31st anniversary of the movement's establishment that saw the participation of thousands of Palestinian people.

Israeli forces destroyed the home of a Palestinian accused of killing two Israelis, in an army raid that triggered clashes overnight on December 17, an AFP journalist said.

One Palestinian youth was injured by shrapnel from live Israeli bullets after Israeli forces opened fire targeting his vehicle in the Silwad town northeast of the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah, late Sunday.

Haniyeh promised that additional details would be disclosed at a news conference that Hamas' military wing, Al-Qassam Brigades, would be holding in the coming days.

"The West Bank has shaken and stood up with glory, strength and skill, as if it wanted to say to our people on the occasion of this glorious anniversary that it was with the resistance, in total harmony".

The PA, led by President Mahmud Abbas and his Fateh Party, cooperates closely with Israeli security, while Hamas has fought three wars with Israel since 2008.

They accused Netanyahu of failing to combat the Palestinian resistance and called for him to approve the illegal outposts in the occupied territories, as well as to expand the illegal Ofra settlement, where two Israeli soldiers were killed last week and a third sustained serious injuries.

Speaking at a cabinet meeting on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he had ordered "the acceleration of the demolition of terrorists' homes" in the wake of the recent wave of attacks. Proponents of the practice claim that it deters future attacks, whereas critics consider it a form of unnecessary collective punishment. After he had to stop, they attacked him and dragged him out of the auto and started to beat him, causing him several injuries.
