Haniyeh Says Peace Process “Buried Forever”, Calls for New Intifada
Head of Hamas’s politburo Ismail Haniyeh announced on Thursday that the peace process between Palestinians and Israelis is ‘buried forever’, following US President’s decision to recognize Al-Quds as Israeli capital.
During a press conference in Gaza, Haniyeh called for a new Intifada for Al-Quds, saying Friday will be a rage day.
“Zionist policy can’t be confronted but through a new Intifada for the freedom of Al-Quds and West Bank.”
Haniyeh said Trump’s decision is an aggression against Palestinian people and a declaration of war.
He called on Palestinian Authority to be “courageous’ and announce that Oslo accords are over.
Haniyeh meanwhile, stressed on the importance of Palestinian unity in a bid to confront the “dangerous conspiracy against al-Quds.”
He lashed out against Arab leaders, wondering if Al-Quds issue requires an Arab summit.
“If theft of Al-Quds doesn’t require an Arab summit, then when Arab leaders would meet?”
In this regard, Haniyeh said the Muslim Ummah (nation) “has to rise above its wounds and unite for Al-Quds.”
