The series of weekly violent Palestinian protests known as the March of Return will not end on May 15, Israel’s independence day and the  day Palestinians mark as Nakba Day, but will continue through Ramadan, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said this week.

Attending a meeting of religious clerics ahead of the month-long fast of Ramadan, which commences May 16, Haniyeh said the protests would not end, as originally planned, as they have “strategic goals.” He did not lay out any specific goals.

Haniyeh added furthermore that the protests would no longer be isolated to the Gaza border and would spread throughout Judea and Samaria.

A report published by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center earlier in April found that at least 26 of those 36 rioters killed were involved with terrorist organizations.
