Frontline News has reporters on the ground in Israel, close to the border with Jordan in the West Bank.
On Tuesday, Khaled Mashal, the ex-leader and one of the founding members of Hamas, urged for a worldwide Muslim uprising in solidarity with Palestine set for this Friday.
Mashal stressed the importance of Muslims making sacrifices and participating in Jihad, showing their readiness to dedicate their lives and blood to further the Palestinian movement.
At this moment, Israelis living in Samaria within the West Bank are reporting armored vehicles moving toward the border from Jordan.
Additionally, there are reports of buses filled with women and children evacuating Samaria.
As reported by Frontline News:
Convoys of Muslim women and children were spotted traveling to Jordan Wednesday from Samaria, raising concerns from the area’s residents about an impending attack.
Israelis remain on high alert after Saturday’s attack in which Muslim forces invaded the country from Gaza, massacring over a thousand Jews and taking dozens back to the Gaza Strip as hostages.
Though Israel has yet to follow through on its promises to exact a “merciless” retaliation, Hamas has called for more massacres this Friday. Khalid Mashal, one of Hamas’ founding members and leaders, urged Muslims around the world in a speech Wednesday “to show anger” and carry out a “global jihad.”
Elhanan Friedlow, who lives in the Eastern Benjamin region, says residents have so far seen over 27 large taxi vans full of Muslim women and children approach the Allenby Bridge that connects Samaria with Jordan. Sources told Frontline News the convoy originated in the village of Al Mughayyir — 45 minutes north of Ramallah — and collected more passengers in the village of Duma before continuing its journey. Military sources stationed in Samaria say the convoy drove through fields to attempt to circumvent IDF checkpoints.
But the convoy did run into a checkpoint, where IDF personnel confirmed that passengers were reportedly carrying plane tickets. Unconfirmed reports add, however, that Jordanian authorities have stopped the convoy at the border…
…The sightings have sparked independent preparation among residents of Samaria’s Jewish cities, towns, and villages. Only some receive adequate military protection against surrounding Muslim villages and are frequently subject to violent attacks. With Israeli troops spread thin between fighting Hezbollah in the north and Hamas in the south, Israelis are even less hopeful for military protection.
