Islamic State declares war on Hamas with an execution video

A committee from the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) has been preparing documents for discussion during the meeting of the organization's Central Council next week, deciding the future Palestinian political steps.

Citing "three Western diplomats", Israeli Channel Ten diplomatic correspondent Barak Ravid reported the freeze on Friday at Axios.

Trump's announcement recognising Jerusalem as the Israeli capital is also displayed in the video, which criticises Hamas for cracking down on fellow Islamist organisations in the region. "Trump's decision made us very keen to speed up the reconciliation process", he said.

The $125 million in question amounts to about a third of Washington's annual donations to the agency.

While some thought Donald Trump's December decision to relocate the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would ignite a fourth war Hamas' response has been muted. At the end of 2017, the UN General Assembly passed a resolution against the United States president's decision to appoint Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. If the cuts targeted UNRWA, "that would inflict untold suffering for millions of the most vulnerable people in the world".

PA President Mahmoud Abbas slammed Trump's declaration last month recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, saying that the US could no longer be considered an unbiased broker in solving the conflict.

The two groups, both of which are committed to a policy of armed resistance against Israel's decades-long occupation, have said they would consider the offer.

According to PCHR's investigations, at approximately 12:00 on Monday, 08 January 2018, Israeli gunboats stationed off al-Waha Resort shore, northwest of Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza strip, opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats sailing within 3 nautical miles. Some Palestinian officials call Trump's threat blackmail.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated support for United States plans to cut funds for United Nations refugees agency UNRWA.

Privately, however, Netanyahu urged Trump not to enact the cuts, according to the Times of Israel.

Data released by the IDF on Saturday night revealed that from 99 terrorist attacks over 2017, 20 Israelis were killed, with 169 wounded. A senior Israeli official told him that the "humanitarian situation in Gaza is complicated enough and harming UNRWA funding will only make it more complicated".
