Haniyeh: Intifada to begin Friday

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh announced the beginning of another round of clashes between the Palestinians and Israel in response to US president Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Haniyeh was quoted by Hamas news sources as saying that the next intifada would begin Friday and that the peace process had been "buried." He called on the Palestinian nation in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria to rise against the "Zionist enemy."
