GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Gaza's Hamas chief is calling for a renewed violent uprising against Israel.
Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh called Saturday on all Palestinian factions to oppose the recently restarted peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians and take up "armed resistance."
Israel is negotiating with the West Bank government of President Mahmoud Abbas. The Islamic militant group Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, does not recognize Israel and calls for its destruction. It was responsible for scores of suicide bombings and other attacks against Israel last decade.
Israel recently discovered a pair of tunnels from Gaza it says was aimed at carrying out attacks. Haniyeh spoke on the second anniversary of a prisoner swap with Israel that freed more than a thousand Palestinians in exchange for captive Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit.
