The Lions’ Den group yesterday called on Palestinians to confront the Israeli occupation in the occupied West Bank, in support of the brave freedom fighters in the Gaza Strip.

“O free people of Palestine, you must all move from the stage of defence to the stage of offence in the West Bank,” the group said in a statement.

The group called on all armed groups in the West Bank to launch a simultaneous attack against the “entire Zionist presence”, to destabilise the occupation’s security.

The group also called on citizens to burn the agricultural areas of the illegal settlements, burn tyres on all bypass roads, block settler roads and paralyse their movements.

“Our family and loved ones in the Palestinian villages, you must take up arms immediately and prepare Molotov cocktails, knives and local explosives if you can. Do not wait for the settlers to attack your villages. Rather, stand up as one and attack them. If they see strength and courage in you, they will turn away in defeat,” the group added.

Some 17 Palestinians, including four children, have been killed and 295 injured by Israeli occupation forces in the West Bank since Saturday.
