Fatah official: "Rise up, rebels of Jerusalem"

Fatah Commissioner for Mobilization and Organization and Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul: "Rise up, rebels of Jerusalem, rise up for the soul of Muhammad [Abu Khdeir] (i.e., the Palestinian teen who was kidnapped and murdered, possibly for nationalistic reasons in revenge for the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens), and [for] all the Martyrs (Shahids) of Palestine. As of this moment, the clashes in Jerusalem's Shuafat [neighborhood], which have lasted for over 11 hours, [have left] over 100 Palestinians wounded."

Note: On June 12, 2014, three Israeli teens were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank. The boys' bodies were found by Israeli security forces near Hebron on June 30, 2014. They appeared to have been shot to death soon after the abduction. Two days later, a Palestinian teen was kidnapped and murdered in Jerusalem in what may have been a revenge attack, although this has yet to be confirmed. Following this murder, Palestinians took to the streets of eastern Jerusalem in violent protests.
