The Higher Follow-up Committee for the Arab Peoples, the highest body representing the Palestinians within the Green Line in the occupied territories, announced the organization of a solidarity stand this Friday afternoon in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem, while the Hamas and Islamic Jihad movements warned of the repercussions of Israel’s practices in Jerusalem on the ceasefire.
The Higher Follow-up Committee for the Arabs said that the sit-in, which it called for, comes to express the refusal to deport the residents of Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and replace them with settlers, and to emphasize standing by them and supporting their steadfastness.

This came after the attorney general of the Israeli government, who represents the attorney general, asked the Supreme Court to exempt him from being a party to the case.
The prosecutor’s request has sparked conflicting speculation about its implications and purpose.
Hamas and Jihad warn
In the same context, two officials in the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) and Jihad warned of the repercussions of Israel’s practices in Jerusalem, and the possibility of the collapse of the ceasefire agreement in Gaza.
Khalil al-Haya, deputy head of Hamas in the Gaza Strip, told reporters in Gaza that “unless the Israeli occupation curbs the extremism of settlers in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa, these lightning bolts will explode in his face.”
Al-Hayya threatened that in the event that calls for organizing marches by extremist Jewish groups continue in the Old City of East Jerusalem, “the ceasefire will remain fragile,” stressing that “in order for the ceasefire to continue, the project of displacement to the outskirts of Jerusalem must be stopped.”
He also demanded a return to all the commitments of the understandings to break the siege and speed up the file of rebuilding the Gaza Strip, vowing, “We will not wait long, to reopen the crossings, and to enter the Qatari financial grant” into Gaza.
For its part, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades (the military wing of Hamas) said – in a statement – that it and the leadership of the resistance “are closely following what is happening in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque of provocative and aggressive attempts by the rapists and their leaders,” and warned against harming Al-Aqsa.
The battalions saluted the “Free Almoravids in Jerusalem for their resistance to the desecration of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the aggression against it.”
Meanwhile, a member of the Islamic Jihad’s Political Bureau, Khaled al-Batsh, considered in a statement that the outgoing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “is trying to export his crises to be resolved at the expense of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem.”
Al-Batsh called on all parties to “stop Netanyahu and his government from the scorched-earth policy that he is following against the Palestinian people, to ensure that he avoids the courts and loses his political future.”
Tension prevailed in occupied Jerusalem, yesterday, Thursday, as a result of a series of provocations by settlers, including the visit of MK Itamar Ben Gvir from the far-right to the Damascus Gate.
Ben Gvir came to Bab al-Amud in protest against the Israeli police’s decision to prevent him from organizing the flag march – which represents a provocative celebration of the anniversary of the occupation of East Jerusalem – but left after Palestinians confronted him.
The occupation police arrested a number of Palestinians who tried to confront him, and video clips documented the assault and abuse of a number of young men during their arrest.
The police had issued a decision to prevent Bin Ghafir from storming Al-Aqsa and carrying out a march of flags, claiming that this would lead to a breach of public order and prejudice the security of the state.
Bin Ghafir accused the Commander-in-Chief of the Police of violating his parliamentary immunity after he was prevented from marching in flags.
In a field development, Israeli media said that yesterday, Hamas launched an experimental missile from the Gaza Strip towards the sea, as part of improving its military capabilities, in the first experimental missile launched by the movement since the recent ceasefire agreement.
On April 13, the situation in Palestine erupted as a result of Israeli attacks and provocations in the occupied city of Jerusalem, and the escalation spread to the occupied West Bank and the Palestinian areas within the Green Line, then turned into a military confrontation in Gaza that lasted 11 days, and ended on May 21.
The Israeli aggression on the West Bank and Gaza resulted in 290 martyrs, including 69 children, 40 women and 17 elderly people, and more than 8900 injured, compared to the killing of 13 Israelis and the wounding of hundreds, during the response of the factions in Gaza by firing missiles at Israel.
