Unrest is growing in the Palestinian territories ahead of President Barack Obama’s first visit to Israel on March 20.
Riots and protests have erupted throughout the West Bank and Gaza Strip in recent days, prompting some Israeli officials and Middle East observers to warn that Obama’s visit could spark a third intifada.
“The Palestinians have not said the final word yet, and we expect that there will be attempts to take advantage of the upcoming events, like the visit by Barack Obama, in order to continue the violence,” Israel public security minister Yitzhak Aharonovich was quoted as saying Monday by news outlet Arutz Sheva.
