Under accusations of praising and inciting the reigning violence against the Jewish State in the West Bank and Jerusalem, Hassan Yusef, leader of the Palestinian Islamist Movement Hamas, was arrested by Israeli forces in Beitunia, southwest of Ramallah.

The recent number of knife attacks against Israeli citizens and riots between the Jewish country Special Forces and Palestinians are the reason why authorities are blaming Palestinian groups like Hamas of creating a “hate culture” in the streets.

Meanwhile Palestinians defend their right to response to Israeli occupation and indiscriminate violence against citizens of the West Bank claiming their fight is absolutely legitimate since now occupied territories historically belong to them.

Hamas is considered a terrorist organization by the countries of the European Union among others like Israel who defends its allegation on the Palestinian group continuous instruction to their militants to carry out terror attacks against Israeli citizens, as reported by their official press.

Could this be the beginning of the third Intifada?
