Some supporters of the Hamas armed group on Friday were seen attacking policemen in Nottingham, United Kingdom, in alleged compliance with the directive given by a former Hamas leader and founding member, Khalid Mashal.
In a video posted by a former Parliamentary candidate with The Brexit Party Barnsley, Jim Ferguson, the Hamas supporters were seen throwing items at a police van, chorusing “We are here for Palestine.
“Breaking News Nottingham: Violent #HamasTerrorist supporters are seen attacking the Police in #Nottingham as chaos erupts after a Global Call to Jihad by former Hamas leader Khalid Mashal. Authorities need to go in hard and restore order. Arrest and deport. #UK #Israel,” Ferguson captioned the video.
KOKO TV NG earlier reported that Khalid Mashal had called for global jihad today
He had also called for a show of anger and protests across the Muslim world on Friday in support of the Palestinians amid the ongoing conflict with Israel.
Mashal had given the call in a video released on Tuesday in which he asked Muslims worldwide to apply Jihad “on the ground rather than just in theory.”
According to a translation done by Rachid Hammami who identifies as Brother Rachid on X (formerly Twitter), a Moroccan and former television host and national security expert, Mashal called the day the “Friday of Al-Aqsa flood”.
He called (Today) Friday, October 13 “The Friday of Al-Aqsa flood.”
He said Mashal asked Muslims to “show anger, especially next Friday, in Muslim countries and also among Muslim diaspora around the world”.
According to the translation, Mashal also “asked for financial help from all Muslims around the world; to help with their money,” and “called it ‘Financial Jihad’.
Brother Rashid said, “He asked Muslims to give to the fighters of Gaza in order to compensate them for the destruction.
“He asked political pressure, from Muslim leaders and Muslim nations, to stop Israel’s military invasion of Gaza.
“The most important thing: He asked all Muslims around the world to carry Jihad by their souls; to fight and be martyrs for Al-Aqsa.
“He wants Muslims to fight against the Jews, starting with Muslims who live in the countries surrounding Israel: Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt (but also other countries), to go to the borders and try to enter, each by his own means. He said: This is the time for Jihad to be applied on the ground rather than just in theory. He asked the Mujahedeen to go in long caravans to spell their blood on the land of Palestine.
“These are his final words: Funds are important but today we are asking for your blood and souls [to be sacrificed for Palestine].”
On Saturday, Hamas militants attacked Israel, killing many people.
