A terror group tied to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s political party is threatening to launch a series of attack on Israel starting Friday, according to a statement released by the group.
The al-Aqsa Martyr Brigades (AAMB), an armed militant group tied to Abbas’ Fatah party, said in a statement released earlier this week that Friday would mark “a green light to start guerrilla operations against the brutal Israeli occupation,” according to a copy of the group’s purported statement posted on one of its websites.
Friday marks the beginning of Yom Kippur, the Jewish faith’s holiest day.
The terror group has “called on all units and sleeper cells to prepare for a confrontation with the Israeli occupation,” according to a report in Lebanon’s Al Manar news and other Arabic outlets in the region.
