The “Nablus Battalion” claimed responsibility for the gunfire, which they represented as revenge for the killing of Muhammad Marai on June 28, 2022 (Nablus Battalions Telegram channel, June 30, 2022). The al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, Fatah’s military-terrorist wing, also claimed responsibility for an attack to avenge “the crimes of the occupation” and its settlers, who allegedly continue attacking Palestinian lands [sic] and refugee camps (al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades Telegram channel, June 30, 2022).
- Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum praised the “men of Nablus” who had confronted the “occupation forces” and settlers at the Tomb of Joseph. He said that Israel’s acknowledgment of the wounding of “a brigade commander and a number of people” by the bullets of the “resistance” [terrorist operatives] confirmed the “resistance’s” ability to cause Israel losses and made it more difficult for Israel to “invade” or “attack.” He said confrontations had to continue and escalate in the towns and villages in the West Bank to cause Israel’s “plan” to fail and prevent Israel from achieving its objectives, leading to the “liberation of Palestine” (Fawzi Barhoum’s Telegram channel, June 30, 2022).

Press release following the Hamas delegation’s visit to Lebanon
- Taher al-Nunu, Isma’il Haniyeh’s media advisor, summarized the visit to the Hamas delegation to Lebanon, noting that it was “special” and important because they had met with the Hezbollah leadership and the leaders of the various Palestinian organizations. He said senior Hamas figures had noted their solidarity and support for Lebanon, and had discussed the issue of UNRWA. The Hamas delegation stressed its objection to “attacks” on the sites holy to Islam, especially al-Aqsa mosque. Regarding relations with Hezbollah, he said they were “strategic.” Meeting with the Palestinian organizations, they stressed their “resistance” to Israel’s activities. He said all their “political” efforts were based on Jerusalem as the focal point of the Arab-Muslim world (Shehab, June 29, 2022).
- Khalil al-Haya, deputy chairman of the Hamas political bureau in the Gaza Strip and responsible for the organization’s inter-Arab relations, was interviewed by the Lebanese daily newspaper al-Akhbar on the sidelines of the Hamas delegation’s visit to Lebanon. He was asked about a statement made by Yahya al-Sinwar, head of the Hamas political bureau in the Gaza Strip, several months ago, regarding breaking the [so-called Israeli] “siege” of the Gaza Strip. Al-Haya confirmed that Hamas did in fact intend to break the “siege” by bringing aid ships from abroad. He said a few days before Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said that the oil tanker for Lebanon from Iran was Lebanese territory under the protection of the “resistance,” the Hamas leadership though about breaking the “siege” of the Gaza Strip by purchasing aid ships abroad. He said they also planned to defend the ships in case of “friction with Israel.” However, he said, the plans were not completed because of the developments that led to Operation Guardian of the Walls (al-Akhbar, June 28, 2022).
Reactions to the Negev Forum conference in Bahrain
- On June 28, 2022, the Negev Forum steering committee met in Bahrain for the first time and agreed to advance various security, education, energy and tourism projects. In response to the meeting, which was meant to increase cooperation between Israel and other regional countries, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said the Negev Forum would not bring regional security or stability and would harm the Palestinian cause and the rights of the Palestinian people. He said the forum could be expected to shock all Arabs and especially the Palestinians, because while Israel continued its [alleged] “crimes” against the Palestinian people, some of the Arab states were determined to give Israel “legitimacy,” rob the Palestinians of their rights and threaten “Arab national security.” He called on the Arab states participating in the forum to examine their positions and withdraw immediately from the “crime [of the forum],” which harmed regional stability and security, and increased the disputes and anger between Israel and the Palestinians (Shehab, June 29, 2022).
Registration for Hamas’ summer camps begins

Preparations for the visit of the President of the United States
- Preparations continue in the PA for the visit of American President Joe Biden. Mahmoud Abbas spoke with American Secretary of State Antony Blinken, saying he hoped the visit would contribute to the creation of a “political horizon” for the two-state solution, and lead to stopping Israel’s unilateral actions, the reopening of the American consulate in Jerusalem and removing the PLO from the American list of designated terrorist organizations. Mahmoud Abbas also said that Israel had to stop deducting funds from the tax revenues it collected for the PA. Blinken said President Biden would mention the Palestinians’ demands to the Israeli prime minister (Wafa, June 30, 2022).
- Muhammad Shtayyeh met with several members of Congress and updated them on developments in the Palestinian arena. He repeated the Palestinians demands and called on the United States to exert pressure on Israel to stop its unilateral actions and to compel it to implement signed agreements.

- Regarding the issue of the American president’s visit, Deputy Fatah chairman Mahmoud al-‘Aloul said the PA did not expect progress to be made during the visit and they had no hopes [of support from] the administration. He said the president had sent very positive messages to Mahmoud Abbas about the United States’ commitment to the two-state solution, its objection to expanding the settlements and reopening the American consulate in Jerusalem, but in reality the United States had done nothing to translate the words into action. For that reason, he said, the Palestinian leadership would be forced to act in accordance with the decisions passed by the PLO’s Central Council (Mahmoud al-‘Aloul’s Facebook page, June 30, 2022).
PA minister of education attends a meeting at UNESCO headquarters in Paris
- Palestinian minister of education Marwan Awartani attended a preparatory meeting for the Transforming Education conference held at UNESCO headquarters in Paris. On the sidelines of the conference the Palestinian minister met with several senior officials.

The Palestinian media reported the PA agreed after pressure had been exerted by the American administration. On July 2, 2022, the PA transferred the bullet to American experts for examination. Akram Khatib, the Palestinian attorney general, said that from the beginning they had welcomed the involvement of any international agency interested in helping with the investigation and finding the truth about her death. However, he said, the PA would never hand the bullet over to the Israelis, but would allow the Americans to investigate (al-Jazeera, July 2, 2022).
- Following the criticism of permitting the Americans to examine the bullet, the attorney general said the examination would take place in the American embassy and it would be returned to the Palestinians immediately thereafter.

Muhammad Shtayyeh said the Israeli government was fully responsible for her death and called on international human rights organizations to investigate the circumstances of her death and exert pressure on Israel to release all the prisoners, especially minors and the ill (Wafa, July 2, 2022).

- Hamas spokesman Abd al-Latif al-Qanua said Israel would be responsible for the consequences, and that the death of the oldest prisoner was proof of Israel’s “cruelty.” He said the “crime” had to motivate international institutions to end their silence and to persecute Israel’s leaders. Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem sent his condolences and said it illustrated the medical negligence in Israeli jails, adding that the “crime” revealed Israel’s treatment of prisoners, especially those who were ill (Hamas website, July 2, 2022). Ahmed al-Mudallal, senior PIJ figure, said her death was a premeditated crime and Israel would be responsible for the consequences (Paltoday, July 2, 2022).

Unemployment reached 26.4% (having risen to 46.9% in the Gaza Strip and dropped in the West Bank to 15.5%).

Regarding the Palestinian economy in 2022, Milhem expects the trend of economic recovery to continue, but more slowly than last year (Palestinian monetary fund website, June 30, 2022).
