The last serious round of fighting between Israel and Gaza – the fourth since Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza in 2005 – took place just over a year ago, in May 2021. Israel called that 12-day operation Guardian of the Walls. Hamas gave it another name: Sword of Jerusalem. Why Sword of Jerusalem? Because the rockets Hamas fired on Jerusalem that precipitated Israel’s strong response came, in Hamas’s telling, in response to Israel’s actions on the Temple Mount and in Sheikh Jarrah.

Hamas, in competition with the Palestinian Authority and its president, Mahmoud Abbas, was trying to set new rules of the game: Israeli actions in Jerusalem that they were unhappy with would be met with rockets over the country. Hamas, not the PA, would be the defender of Jerusalem; Hamas, not the PA, would unsheathe the Sword of Jerusalem.
