Violent Gaza Protests Were A Diversion, Hamas Leader Admits

Hamas leader Yayha Sinwar admitted that his terrorist organization orchestrated the weekly “March of Return” violent demonstrations on the Israel-Gaza border to divert attention from internal problems, YNet news reports.

“After the reconciliation efforts (between Hamas and Fatah) reached an impasse, a number of factions planned to cause an internal explosion in the Gaza Strip, but the Marches of Return thwarted the plan,” Sinwar said during a conference Tuesday in the Gaza Strip.

“Gaza did not want to stand idly by when the American Embassy was transferred to Jerusalem,” Sinwar said, adding that “the Palestinian people succeeded in turning this provocation into an opportunity to confront the Israeli enemy.”

Sinwar praised Palestinian protesters for helping “create a means of pressure, like the incendiary balloons.”

Sinwar joins other Hamas officials who have acknowledged Hamas’s role in planning and promoting violent protests on Israel’s border.

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
