Table of Contents (Show / Hide)
In the aftermath of Israel's recent aggression against Gaza, and the perceived lack of support from governments for the Palestinian cause, five new resistance groups have emerged in five Arab countries, with three of them originating from Persian Gulf nations. Who are behind these groups? How were they formed? And what dangers these groups pose to Israel?
In various Arab nations, there has been a rise in newly formed resistance factions expressing solidarity with the Palestinian cause. These groups, officially acknowledging their existence in countries such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, and Jordan, are committed to opposing the Zionist regime and advocating for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.
These resistance groups have also issued warnings of targeting all Israeli interests in the region, spanning from economic hubs to embassies.
These resistance groups are:
1. Ansar al-Sunnah youth in Saudi Arabia
The emergence of the Ansar al-Sunnah youth group in Saudi Arabia has garnered significant attention in the country's online networks. This Salafi group has made it clear that it is committed to supporting Palestine and will not hesitate to oppose the actions of the Saudi government, which is perceived as not being supportive of the Palestinian cause. Saudi Arabia's intelligence and security agencies are actively engaged in efforts to identify and arrest the members of this group in order to prevent the situation from escalating further.
2. Palestinian Supporters Movement in the UAE
The "Palestine Supporters Movement" is the second newly formed resistance group, which made its presence known through the release of the following statement:
"We, a group of young Arab Muslims residing in the UAE, are steadfast in our commitment to our brethren in Palestine and the resilient Gaza Strip. The statement added: With this in mind, we proudly declare the establishment of a pro-Palestinian movement, dedicated to targeting Israel's interests. Our focus extends to monitoring the Israeli embassy, its ambassador, as well as Jewish-affiliated companies, hotels, resorts, and restaurants associated with this oppressive regime. We vow to ensure that Israeli Jews do not find safety within the territories of other nations."
In another part of this statement, it is expressed: "We persist in following the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed, our revered father and leader, who strongly opposed the Zionists. He remarked that Israel, claiming to be a democracy, is one that harms women and children. If it truly is a democracy, I am willing to part with it for a nominal fee and see it cast into the sea."
