The Hamas organization on Monday warned of the consequences of Israel applying sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria as part of the US administration’s “Deal of the Century” peace initiative.

A statement issued by Hamas’ “Jerusalem department” said that the implementation of the annexation plan and causing harm to the Al-Aqsa mosque would result in an outbreak of an intifada against the "occupation."

Hamas called on Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas to renounce the Oslo Accords and its political, economic and military commitments and to devise a plan to fight all together with all the Palestinian Arab organizations.

Hamas also called on the Arab and Islamic nations to work for the liberation of “Palestine” and Jerusalem and on the International Criminal Court to order an investigation into the "war crimes" and "crimes against humanity" committed by Israel.
