A series of mass protests are being orchestrated by Palestinian terrorist group Hamas and are expected to lead to even more violence across the region.

Calls to action have been flooding social media, calling on all Arab Israelis and Palestinians to take part in a strike against Israel. This movement is being backed by both the terrorist organization Hamas, as well as, the Fatah.

The strike looks to unite Palestinians on the West Bank in Gaza and those living within Israeli territory to march in protest of Israel’s air campaign in Gaza. Israel has been actively working to eliminate the threat of Hamas in Gaza. As for the terrorist group, they have been continuously firing missiles into Israel, killing at least 10 Israelis thus far.

Israel’s airstrikes have targeted subterranean tunnels used by Hamas and Hamas’ assets all throughout Gaza, to which the terror group has been hiding within civilian populations.

Hamas and Palestinian authorities are now looking to focus the Palestinian anguish towards Israeli forces through these marches. Demonstrations have seemingly already begun starting with a smaller, yet similar, event that resulted in clashes with authorities just this past weekend.

According to the New York Times, one of the organizers said the marches will begin at 2 p.m. local time in Gaza and the West Bank. Areas with large Arab populations such as, Nazareth were also listed.

Likewise, the Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network is also calling on protestors from around the world to take part in the strike, meaning movements in major western cities will likely take place. Demonstrations on the ground in Israel are expected to be met with a major Israeli police and military presence.

However, mass demonstrations of this nature have been seen before and the conflict occurring over the last few weeks indicate unrest and increased tensions .
