Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar called on Thursday for a "day of blood" in the West Bank, following the UN General Assembly vote on a resolution slamming US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The statement appeared to be an escalation of sorts because up until now Hamas had called for "days of rage," which so far have manifested in widespread protests and riots across the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
