Muslim terrorists riot throughout Judea-Samaria following US decision to back Jewish communities
Hamas, Fatah, PLO and other terror groups and Arab factions in Judea and Samaria staged a “day of rage” in response to the US decision to back Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
The PA ordered to close schools at 11:30 am to encourage children to participate in the violent riots.
Five primary points of riots have been reported, with hundreds of Muslim terrorists rioting at each point.
Violent riots reported in the Arab village of Abu Dis near Jerusalem, Rachel’s Tomb in the Bethlehem area, Ramallah, Hevron and Tulkarem in northern Samaria.
Between 200 and 500 terrorists attended each riot, according to reports.
IDF troops responded with crowd control measures and arrested a number of rioters.
Riots are also being held in protest for the death of a Muslim terrorist member of the Fatah terror group who was serving three life sentences since September 2002. The Israel Prisons Service announced that Sami Abu Diak, who murdered, kidnapped, shot at people and attempted to murder Jews, finally died from cancer.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced last week that the US is softening its position on Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria, the latest in a series of Trump administration moves that weaken the Palestinian hallucination of a statehood.
Pompeo reversed a 1978 State Department legal opinion that held that Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria are “inconsistent with international law.”
“This policy reflects a historical truth – that the Jewish people are not foreign colonialistsץ In fact, we are called Jews because we are the people of Judea”, PM Netanyahu said.
Immediately after the announcement, the US Embassy in Israel issued a travel warning to US citizens regarding Jerusalem, Judea-Samaria, and Gaza.
