The Palestinian resistance group Lions’ Den has warned the Israeli regime of surprise and unprecedented retaliatory attacks as the Tel Aviv regime continues its acts of violence against Palestinians across the occupied West Bank.

“If the residents of the holy city of al-Quds rise up against the occupation (the Israeli regime), we would be able to turn the tables on aggressors and strike fear into the hearts of cruel Zionists,” the Nablus-based group wrote in an Arabic post published on its Telegram channel.

The Lions’ Den hailed the recent wave of retaliatory operations in the occupied al-Quds and paid homage to brave Palestinian resistance fighters who carry them out.

“Zionists should know that the blessed land of Palestine will turn into their graveyard. They should realize that they have no place in our homeland,” the resistance group noted.

It called upon all Palestinians to unite and implement resistance operations.

“We are telling [Israeli prime minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and his savage lap dog [far-right national security minister Itamar] Ben-Gvir that the weapons of armed illegal settlers will be recovered by our forces and later used in the struggle against the Occupation. We would then witness who will have the upper hand,” the Lions’ Den warned.

Israeli forces launch raids on various cities of the occupied West Bank almost on a daily basis under the pretext of detaining “wanted” Palestinians. The raids usually lead to violent confrontations with residents.

Over the past months, Israel has ramped up attacks on Palestinian towns and cities throughout the occupied territories. As a result of these attacks, dozens of Palestinians have lost their lives and many others have been arrested.

The number of Palestinian fatalities caused by the Israeli army this month has risen to 35, including eight children.

Meanwhile, the United Nations has marked 2022 as the deadliest year for Palestinians in the West Bank in 16 years.

Earlier on Monday, Israeli forces killed a young Palestinian man during a military raid on the city of al-Khalil in the southern West Bank.

The Palestinian health ministry said on Monday that 26-year-old Nasim Nayef Salman Abu Fouda was shot in the head after Israeli troops stationed at the military checkpoint 160, south of the Ibrahimi Mosque, opened fire on his car.

He was taken to al-Ahli Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly afterward.
