The IDF Spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, rejected on Friday statements about an "intifada" that has supposedly broken out in Judea and Samaria.

"For the past few weeks, I have been hearing declarations about an intifada that has supposedly broken out in Judea and Samaria," he wrote in a Facebook status.

"The power of prophesy was given to fools, and I do not know what the new day will bring," he added. "But aren't some responsibility and caution required when making premature declarations of an intifada?"

IDF Chief of Staff. Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, also called Thursday "to put things into proportion," as regards the violence in Judea and Samaria.
