Hamas: Palestine indivisible from River to Sea
Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahhar on Sunday evening stressed Hamas nonnegotiable commitment to armed resistance and to the liberation of occupied Palestine from the river to the sea.
Addressing the pro-Hamas masses during a festival held in Gaza to mark the 29th anniversary of the group’s founding, Zahhar said: “Resistance, no matter the means, is our legitimate right and we shall never ever give it up.”
“Our gun will be held to Israel’s head only,” he vowed.
“Every single inch of Palestine is just ours. Palestine is not just Gaza and the West Bank; it extends from the River to the Sea,” Zahhar stated.
He added that Hamas aims to restore the right of the displaced Palestinians to return to their motherland-Palestine.
The Hamas leader urged the Palestinian Authority (PA), the Fatah Movement, and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) to cancel the Oslo Accord, cease security coordination with the Israeli occupation, and opt for armed resistance as the strategic means to liberate Palestine.
He called on Muslims, Arabs, and the world’s free people to rally round the Palestinians in the face of the Israeli colonizers.
“No matter how forgotten and oppressed we get, our rifle will only target the Israeli occupation,” Zahhar maintained.
He pledged that Hamas will forever defend Occupied Jerusalem and the holy al-Aqsa Mosque against Israel’s Judaization schemes.
Tens of thousands took part in Hamas festival, in the latest move to testify to the popularity enjoyed by the group in Gaza. Other supporters across the West Bank and Occupied Jerusalem celebrated the ceremony in tweets and videos circulated and shared by thousands on social media networks.
