Jerusalem Post - Masked men belonging to various Palestinian factions on Saturday announced the establishment of the Brigades of National Unity in Hebron and the beginning of a third intifada against Israel.

In a video posted on several Palestinian websites, a spokesman for the new group said it consisted of members of Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

The spokesman said that although his group backed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's statehood bid at the UN, "We will not give up one inch of the lands of Palestine, from the river to the sea."

He said the group would "pursue our struggle until we expel the occupation and liberate all Palestine."
