Headline: “The National and Islamic Forces: Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday – days of popular rage”
“The Palestinian National and Islamic Forces yesterday [Dec. 5, 2017] called to hold ‘days of popular rage’ in protest of a possible American decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and transfer the American embassy to it from Tel Aviv.
The forces declared ‘Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday as days of popular rage throughout the homeland, gatherings in all the city centers, and sit-down strikes in front of the American embassy and consulates.’”
Palestinian National and Islamic Forces – an unaffiliated coordinating body comprised of representatives from factions in the PLO and outside the PLO. The Palestinian National and Islamic Forces were established in 2000 shortly after the start of the PA terror campaign (the second Intifada, 2000-2005), under the authorization of Yasser Arafat and the leadership of terrorist Marwan Barghouti. During the PA terror campaign it played an active role in coordinating political efforts and terror attacks against Israel, but since the end of the campaign it has been less significant and its activity is primarily centered in Gaza.
