A leader in ruling Palestinian movement Hamas called on Wednesday for a resumption of suicide attacks in Israel, following the deaths of 18 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
"We urge our Mujahideen (fighters) everywhere to resume martyr operations (suicide attacks) in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa and Jaffa and everywhere else," Nizar Rayan shouted into loudspeakers at demonstrations in a northern Gaza town.
Hamas, which won a landslide election victory last January, has not claimed any suicide attack inside Israel since January 2005 when the Islamic movement agreed to an informal truce in such attacks.
