Israel Kills 15 During Assault On UN School As Military Intensifies Attack On Refugee Camp ›

Some 3,300 Palestinians, including many women and children, were taking refuge in the building inJabalya refugee camp when it came under fire around dawn, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said.

"Our initial assessment is that it was Israeli artillery that hit our school," UNRWA chief Pierre Krahenbuhl said in a statement after representatives of the agency visited the scene and examined fragments, craters and other damage.

Blood splattered floors and mattresses inside classrooms at the Jabalya Girls Elementary School and survivors picked through shattered glass and debris for flesh and body parts to bury.

Did Israel Just Start The Third Intifada? ›

Israeli government officials now admit that Hamas was not responsible for the kidnap and murder of three Israeli teens which sparked the recent escalation of hostilities, despite clearly stating early on that Hamas was responsible.  Katie Zavadski, who wrote the article linked above, points us to Musa al-Gharbi, who argues that Israeli officials were deliberately provoking Hamas:

All the illegal and immoral actions related to Operation Brother’s Keeper were justified under the premise of finding and saving the missing teens whom the Israeli government knew to be dead — cynically exploiting the tragedy to whip up public outcry in order to provoke and then confront Hamas. This pattern of deception continues under the ongoing military offensive in Gaza. For example, last week in collaboration with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi and Abbas, in its efforts to alienate Hamas, Israel announced a bad-faith cease-fire proposal, which Hamas was not consulted on and never agreed to but whose violation supposedly justified Israel’s expansion and intensification of the military campaign into Gaza.

If it’s true that the Israeli government lied about the time and cause of death for three Israeli teens in order to whip up support for a new war with Hamas, then it’s pretty clear that this was a war of choice. And while attempts to organize a ceasefire continue, it may too late to keep the number of casualties minimal, since some Palestinians in the West Bank are now claiming to have started the Third Intifada:

The epicenter of the protests was the Qalandiya checkpoint, which separates Jerusalem and Ramallah, while smaller protests reportedly took place in the West Bank towns of Bethlehem and Nablus. At least two Palestinians were killed and 200 others were injured after IDF troops returned fire to the protestors during Laylat al-Qadr, a holiday marking the night the first verses of the Quran are believed to have been revealed to the prophet Muhammad.

"In the West Bank, we need to take our resistance efforts to a higher level," a student named Na’el Halabi told Al Jazeera. "Gaza is not alone: we are part of the same struggle.”

This “day of rage” was evidently called for by Fatah, the party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Often considered the preferred, more moderate alternative to Hamas by Western leaders, Fatah has recently felt pressure to build up support among its constituency by standing up to the West. Thursday’s protests are believed to be the largest since the end of the 2000–2005 uprising. Organized as the “48K March,” they were quickly branded with the “Third Intifada” hashtag on Twitter[.]

Maybe calling this the “Third Intifada” is just exaggeration from over-zealous protesters.  But either way, it is bad news for both sides.   Dropping bombs in Gaza is a sure way to provoke violence in the West Bank.  If these mass protests and clashes with security forces in the West Bank continue, the Israeli government may be looking at a lot more bloodshed than it originally anticipated.
