Emblem of the Popular Resistance Committee
The PRC was founded in September 2000, and has since categorically refused any form of reconciliation with Israel. For a quick recap, see: What is the Popular Resistance Committee?
The IDF (Zahal) is prepared to defend the residents of Israel and will respond with strength and determination against any attempt to execute terrorist attacks. Hamas uses other terror organizations to carry out terror attacks against the State of Israel and will bear the consequences of these actions in any future operation embarked upon by the IDF (Zahal) in order to eliminate the terror threat and restore the relative calm to the area.
