Must Read

Attacks on Israeli checkpoints, soldiers, and settlements have earned The Lions’ Den fame among young Palestinians.

Recent months have seen the emergence of an armed group from Nablus in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, which seems to be altering the face of Palestinian resistance.In an operation code-named “Break the Wave,” Israel has tried to destroy the group as well as others, leading to almost daily raids and the deaths of hundreds of Palestinians. However, the group has continued to be active, and there are now few indications that the occupied Palestinian territory will ever be put to rest. The majority of the group’s members are early-20s-aged young males who have personal affiliations with each of the four main Palestinian political organizations: Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. The Lions’ Den made its debut on September 2 in Nablus at a memorial service for two of its fighters who had been killed by Israeli troops 40 days earlier: group founder Mohammed al-Azizi and Abd al-Rahman Sobh.
