TEHRAN, July 12 (MNA) – A Middle East political analyst has said the recent conflict between Palestinians and Israel is a drafting by Palestinians to ‘entrap’ Israel in a war.

In response to a question as to the real source of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians and whether the kidnap and death of three Israelis and reportedly revenge kidnap and death of a Palestinian teenager would be a real cause, Hassan Hanizadeh told Mehr News English service that Israel would not welcome any clashes with Palestinians; however, “this is Palestinian Hamas and Fatah who cooperate in plotting against Israel with the objective of entrapping Netanyahu’s government into a war.”

Hanizadeh is a Middle East political analyst based on Tehran.
