Israel intensify troops deployment after Palestinian Arabs retaliate attacks
On Wednesday morning, Israel ordered a massive boost to police forces deployed in cities with Jewish and Arab populations.
The move came hours after a state of emergency declared in Lod, where intense Arab retaliation late Tuesday reportedly saw three synagogues and numerous shops torched, along with dozens of cars.
The rare emergency declaration in the central Israeli city prompted the urgent dispatching of several Border Police companies to work to restore order.
A state of emergency hands Israeli police officers more authority and freedom to operate in the locality.
They can close off areas of the city, enter any place to carry out their duties, and employ “reasonable force” to compel civilians to obey their orders.
Some Lod residents said power was cut in their homes and Molotov cocktails were thrown through their windows, Channel 12 news reported late Tuesday
Israeli police also acknowledged having to escort some residents from a community center to their homes amid Arabs retaliation.
Meanwhile, Palestinian resistance groups have vowed to retaliate Israeli-Jewish racist atrocious attacks.
Hamas chief declares victory in battle of Jerusalem
Although, Hamas and Islamic Jihad had lost some of its commanders and fighters, they vowed to retaliate Israeli attacks.
Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh said in a speech on Tuesday night that the Palestinians have set a new “balance of power” with Israel.
He made this announcement after a day of massive rocket attacks on Israel, including an unprecedented 130 rockets fired at central Israel Tuesday evening.
“We have achieved victory in the battle for Jerusalem, the defense of Jerusalem,” Haniyeh said. He later added: “Jerusalem is the axis of conflict.”
Meanwhile, Tuesday saw a barrage of missiles over central Israel not seen since 2014, when Hamas and Israel last fought an all-out war.
