Hamas: We are committed to armed resistance
First Deputy Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, Ahmad Bahar, on Friday affirmed that Hamas will remain committed to armed resistance.
During his Friday sermon in Gaza city, Bahar said that armed resistance is a right guaranteed by international laws, pointing out that the reason behind the decade-long blockade and the electricity crisis plaguing Gaza is its “adherence to resistance”.
Bahar expressed Hamas’s keenness on achieving reconciliation and ending the division and called on the Muslim and Arab nations to shoulder their responsibilities toward the Palestinian cause.
He warned the Israeli occupation against continuing its crimes and violations in the West Bank and Jerusalem and asked the Palestinian factions to adopt a unified strategy based on resistance not negotiations which were proved to be a failure. “The Israeli occupation understands only the language of force,” he added.
