The Hamas terror group calls for mass rallies in the West Bank, Jerusalem and throughout the Arab and Muslim world on Friday in support of its fight against Israel.

The group hails the achievements of its armed wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam, and calls on young Palestinians in the West Bank to “rise up and go out in roaring crowds,” and clash with settlers and soldiers in the area.

It also addresses Arab Israelis, asking them to gather at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa compound, the Temple Mount, to prevent Jews from “desecrating it” and “building on it.”

Hamas also extends an appeal to Palestinians in the diaspora, as well as “the free people of our Arab and Islamic nation all around the world,” to gather in “the closest point to Jerusalem” in order to show their solidarity with the terror group and stop the “Israeli plans to Judaize Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa.”
