The previous intifadas in 1987-1991 and 2000-2005 left hundreds of Israelis and thousands of Palestinians dead.

Hamas has announced the beginning of the third “intifada” six days after US President Donald Trump announced the controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

According to the Palestinian Islamic fundamentalist organization, which governs the Gaza Strip, it expects the “day of rage” protests against the US move, which claimed two lives and left over 1,000 injured on Friday, to continue.

“Protests will continue in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and Jerusalem. Because we protest against the US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, as we consider it the capital of Palestine. We hope that the protests will develop further and further,” the movement’s press secretary told RIA Novosti.

A day after Trump’s announcement, which has been condemned by Muslim states and countries backing a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, the leader of the political bureau of Hamas called for a third “intifada” uprising “against the US and Zionist plans to Judaize Jerusalem.” Amid tense clashes between Palestinians and police over the US decision on Jerusalem, the Israeli army has intensified its operations against Hamas, particularly, targeting its tunnels in the Gaza Strip.

Most recently, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Wasel Abu Yousef, told Sputnik that the Palestinian movements of Hamas and Fatah, formerly rivals, are united over Trump’s decision on Jerusalem. Following a new round of reconciliation talks under the mediation of Egyptian authorities held in October, Hamas and Fatah signed an agreement with both sides promising it would usher in a new era of Palestinian unity.

    I am sorry that Hamas and Fatah world terrorist took President Trump out of context. I won’t even get into that here. Hamas declaring the third Intifada, and President of Palestinian Authority “Fatah terrorist” also went with the Intifada.

    After Malaysia, Iran, Hezbollah hermit leader,Erdogan dictator of Turkey, The European Caliphate that Merkel made, leaving the EU with Millions of Muslim. and a 10000 ISIS terrorists radicals in every country of the EU that took them in. Now doubt why they were against President Trump. Jordon does not like it. Egypt does not like it, Syrian Iranian Puppet does not like it, and Hezbollah world terrorist do not like it. Tough that is how the cookie crumbled.

    Palestinians are not trying to negotiate in good faith, and peace ended by Hamas and President m. Abbas before it even started.
