Gaza,28 Dzulhijjah 1437/30 September 2016 (MINA) -The Palestinians will soon reap the crops of anti-occupation resistance, political bureau member of Hamas Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahhar, vowed on Thursday evening.
Addressing the Palestinian masses during a festival staged by Hamas in western Gaza City to mark the 16th anniversary of the Jerusalem Intifada, Zahhar acclaimed the anti-occupation Intifada, dubbing it an “engine that never breaks down.”
“The first blazes of the Jerusalem Uprising emerged as the Palestinians firmly rejected a break in at Muslims’ the Holy Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israel’s notorious former PM Ariel Sharon,” stated Zahhar, as quoted by The Palestinian Information Center (PIC).
“Hamas will never ever forfeit a single inch of the Palestinian soil,” he pledged.
Zahhar reiterated Hamas’s firm rebuff of any peace initiatives or negotiations with the Israeli occupation authority before the occupied Palestinian territories are liberated.
He lashed out at the Palestinian Authority (PA) president, Mahmoud Abbas, for announcing his intents to join the funeral procession of Israel’s former President Shimon Peres slated to be held on Friday.
He described Abbas’s projected participation in the funeral of Peres, remembered by the Palestinians as a murderer and an instigator of bloodshed, a barefaced provocation of the Palestinian people and the Muslim nation.(T/P008/R07)
