On the morning of February 6th, a Palestinian man rammed his car into a group of Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem, injuring 12.

One of the injured is in critical condition.

The Israel Defense Forces were in pursuit of the man, as of the latest tweet.

Just hours prior, in the early hours of February 6th, the IDF struck Hamas positions in Gaza, since it holds the group responsible for the unrelenting launching of mortar shots and explosive balloons into Israeli territory from the city.

Hamas allegedly supported the car ramming, and on February 5th, urged Palestinians to ramp up their confrontations with Israeli troops, after Israeli security forces shot dead a 17-year-old Palestinian, who the IDF said threw a Molotov cocktail at troops during clashes in the West Bank city of Hebron.

“We call for escalating confrontations with the occupation and its settlers and fighting their assaults against the land and holy sites, especially the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque,” Hamas said.

The Palestinian Authority Health Ministry identified the teenager as 17-year-old Mohammed al-Haddad and said that he was shot in the heart.

According to the IDF, al-Haddad hurled a firebomb at soldiers at the entrance to Shuhada Street in the flashpoint city in the southern West Bank.

On the morning of February 6th, a 19-year-old Palestinian died during confrontation with the IDF in the West Bank city of Jenin, six others were injured.

There has been a very apparent surge in violence since US President Donald Trump announced his “Deal of the Century” peace plan that is incredibly biased towards Israel.

The plan has been criticized as heavily favoring Israel and not going far enough to prevent future expansion settlements. It also recognized all current illegal settlements as sovereign Israeli territory and sets out further annexations.
