(Worthy News) - The Israeli army is deploying three additional brigades to Gaza and the West Bank at the start of what Israeli security officials believe could be an extremely violent week of Palestinian protests coinciding with the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, the military said Saturday.

An army spokesperson told reporters that two of the reinforcement brigades would be sent to the Gaza Strip, while the third would be positioned in the West Bank.

The leaders of the Hamas terrorist group, which controls Gaza and seeks to destroy Israel, are encouraging hundreds of thousands of Gazans to try to breach the border with Israel en masse. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
