A Muslim cleric instructed the Palestinian people to "stab" Israelis Friday during a sermon at the Al-Abrar Mosque in the Gaza Strip.

Sheikh Muhammad Sallah "Abu Rajab" said in a video clip highlighted by the Middle East Media Research Institute that the world must be "constantly" reminded about something "everyone has forgotten."

"This is Gaza! This is the place of trenches and guns! This is the West Bank! This is the place of bombs and daggers!" he said, according to MEMRI's translation.

"Today, we realize why the [Jews] build walls. They do not do this to stop missiles, but to prevent the slitting of their throats," the cleric added.

Then, brandishing a knife while making stabbing motions, the cleric ordered violence.

"My brother in the West Bank: Stab! My brother is the West Bank: Stab the myths of the Talmud in their minds! My brother in the West Bank: Stab the myths about the temple in their hearts!" he instructed.

"Do not fear what will be said about you. Oh men of the West Bank, next time, attack in a group of three, four, or five. Attack them in groups. Cut them into body parts," he later added.

The call for violence comes during a series of stabbing attacks. Earlier today, Israeli Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on Twitter that a terrorist had been "shot and killed" after stabbing a soldier in Jerusalem.
