Salah al-Arouri, the deputy leader of the Hamas terrorist organization, claimed on Wednesday that "the policy of the Israeli government may lead to an explosion in the entire region."
In an interview with Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV, al-Arouri said that "the recent elections in Israel have created a political change that carries with it dangerous consequences, since the right-wing parties that rule Israel strive to expel the Palestinians from Judea and Samaria."
In this context, al-Arouri stressed that "the world must know that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is a red line and harming it means that all options will be open and dangerous."
The top Hamas official called on Fatah to agree on a "unified national strategy that will include all avenues of the political, popular and armed resistance."
Al-Arouri claimed that it is the chairman of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, who vetoes the unification of Palestinian Arab institutions based on a new national strategy.
In the Israeli context, al-Arouri said that "the extreme and illogical government in Israel," which he also called "the Zionist ISIS", has "caused a crisis in Israel's relations in the international arena alongside the unprecedented internal political crisis in Israel, and these constitute a golden opportunity for the Palestinians to take advantage of this to increase the pressure on Israel also through terrorist activity."
