Gaza, 4 Ramadan 1436/21 June 2015 (MINA) – Hamas has not received any “serious” proposal for a truce with the Israeli occupation, Safa news reported a senior member of the movement as saying yesterday.
Mousa Abu-Marzouk reiterated that his movement had not closed the door for dialogue with any side that wanted to mediate, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
On Facebook he wrote: “Regarding the repeated Israeli remarks about a truce in Gaza, all what happened was a kind of discussion with ambassadors and political envoys dispatched by Israel. Everything offered was verbal.”
About the aggressive remarks of the Palestinian Authority (PA) which accused Hamas of ignoring the Palestinian national agreement and meeting with the Israelis, Abu-Marzouk said: “There is no need for such anger and the PA’s remarks that Hamas is meeting with the Israeli occupation are baseless.”
He added: “Hamas’s goals are very clear and it cannot cross the Palestinian principles.” He noted that Hamas would not act alone and away from the Palestinian consensus.
The senior Hamas leader said that the Palestinian people have the right to end the eight-year Israeli siege imposed on Gaza, rebuild what the occupation destroyed during four offensives and build an airport and seaport on condition of not separating the coastal enclave from the occupied West Bank.
He stressed that the Palestinians have the right not to pay the price for the return of their legitimate rights.(T/R05/R03)
