January 5, 2013 19:39

Palestinian Authority security forces in the West Bank have arrested members of a new terrorist group who recently declared the beginning of a third intifada against Israel.

In a video posted on Youtube last month, nine masked men from Hebron declared the establishment of a new group called the Brigades of National Unity and called for a third intifada.

A spokesman for the group vowed to pursue the fight against Israel until the liberation of all of Palestine, "from the river to the sea."

He said that the group has decided to launch the third intifada against Israel from the heart of Hebron so that it would expand to the rest of the Palestinian territories.

The spokesman also threatened that his group would kidnap IDF soldiers and other Israelis "if Israel continued to kill and arrest" Palestinians.
