He stressed that the Arab and Islamic nation, if it has the will, is able to liberate the Palestinian land.
In a worksheet entitled “the Achievements of the Armed Resistance in Jerusalem”, the Hamas leader Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri stressed that the city of Jerusalem represents a part of the Islamic sanctities and will never be waived.
For his part, the leader of the Islamic Jihad Ahmad Mudallal warned of occupation plans to demolish the Al-Aqsa Mosque through the ongoing excavations under it, and hailed the steadfastness of the worshipers and students in the Aqsa Mosque.
Leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Jamil Majdalawi said in a worksheet entitled “the Possibility of Combining between the Armed and Popular Resistance”: “The popular resistance is wider than the armed resistance.”
The speakers agreed that the futile negotiations constitute cover for the Israeli attacks against the Palestinians and Jerusalemites, and called for releasing the resistance in the West Bank and Jerusalem to confront the occupation schemes.
