Hamas: Israeli attacks on Gaza, attempt to halt Jerusalem uprising
The spokesman of Hamas Movement, Hazem Qasem, said that the Israeli shelling that targeted Gaza at dawn Monday, is a failed attempt to end the ongoing uprising that erupted after the US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Qasem pointed out that the Israeli air strikes aimed at pressuring Hamas Movement due to its continuous support for all of the ongoing events of the Jerusalem Intifada (uprising) across the Palestinian territories.
“Our people will not be intimidated by the Israeli repeated airstrikes and crimes. Our people will continue the Intifada until the US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel is annulled and the liberation of Palestine is achieved”, the Hamas spokesman said.
Israeli airstrikes at dawn Monday targeted different areas of northern Gaza, without causing injuries among civilians.
