Several Palestinian groups have announced they will renew their fighting against Israel when their so-called “truce” with the Jewish state ends this year. “We do not see that the results we obtained from the truce may encourage us to renew it for a single day at the end of this year,” Islamic Jihad leader Ramadan Shallah said. Several groups associated with the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades also have announced “the calm has gone to hell,” in the wake of recent targeted assassinations by Israel and a series of arrests by Palestinian Authority forces. Meanwhile, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas said the lull must continue in order to ensure security in all PA areas “so citizens do not feel threatened anymore by Israeli airplanes, missiles, and artillery.”
