Amid mounting tensions between Israel and Hamas, one of the terror group’s top officials in Gaza sent out a call on Friday to Palestinians throughout the world to attack Jews.

At a speech delivered at a “March of Return” rally on Friday, July 12, broadcast on the terror group’s television station, Al-Aqsa TV, Political Bureau member Fathi Hammad demanded that Israel lift the “siege” on the Gaza Strip by Friday, July 19, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported based on video of the address.

“There are Jews everywhere,” Hammad shouted. “We must attack every Jew on planet Earth! We must slaughter and kill them, with Allah’s help,” he said, appealing to the “seven million Palestinians abroad.”

“We will lacerate them and tear them to pieces,” he added.

According to Hammad, Palestinians in Gaza, Judea and Samaria, and all over the world have “many methods and means” “up their sleeves” that will “powerfully explode” in Israel’s face. He also claimed that Palestinians “are not rational,” and that they “will not die standing idly by.”

Instead, Hammad claimed Palestinians would “die cutting off [Jews’] heads” and “killing them with explosive belts,” which he says Hamas manufactures in Gaza factories.

Hammad also incited Palestinians in Judea and Samaria, telling them to purchase “five-shekel knives” and “cut the necks of Jews.”
