Gaza, ALRAY - The Israeli aggression against Gaza Strip is an appalling crime which would not break the Palestinian resistance and steadfastness, Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas has said.
In a statement on Monday, the movement pointed out that ‘Israel’s’ killing of more than 40 Palestinians, including women and children, and injuring hundreds more, is a serious escalation that reveals its sadistic nature and its policy based on committing massacres against the Palestinian people.
“As efforts succeeded in reaching a ceasefire brokered by Egypt and Qatar, we hail Gazans for standing steadfast and backing the Palestinian resistance in the face of the barbaric Israeli aggression,” the movement indicated.
It stressed that the Palestinian blood and sacrifices will fuel the struggle to restore the legitimate Palestinian rights to liberation and return.
The movement added that it will continue its fight to preserve and protect Palestinian rights, constants, and holy sites, achieve the Palestinian aspirations, and embrace Palestinian unity and comprehensive resistance as an option to defend land, detainees and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
It reiterated its rejection of all forms of normalization, and call on the Arab regimes that normalized ties with the Israeli occupation to reverse their wrongful decision and endorse Arab and Muslim values against the occupation.
“The continuous wave of normalization between some Arab states and the Israeli occupation will provide the colonial occupation with a cover to commit further crimes against the Palestinian people and their homeland,” the statement said.
The resistance movement vehemently condemned the double standards policy adopted by the US administration and some EU states towards the Palestinian cause and rights, urging them to backtrack on their approach out of respect for humanitarian values and international laws and conventions.
It also stressed that the atrocities and massacres perpetrated by the Israeli occupation during its aggression on the Gaza Strip, as well as the continuous violations and crimes across occupied Palestine, will not be forgotten by the passage of time.
The Palestinian resistance movement called on all human rights groups and humanitarian organizations to strongly act to hold Israeli occupation leaders to account as war criminals before the International Criminal Court (ICC).
