Hamas Movement called on the Arab and Islamic nation to prepare itself for the liberation battle of Palestine, stressing that the nation’s defeat in June 1967 does not mean a total surrender before the occupation.
Thursday, June 5, marks the 47th anniversary of the Naksa (setback) during which Israeli enemy occupied West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem and invaded Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula.
In 1967 more than 350,000 Palestinians and 150,000 Syrians were expelled and 15,000 Arabs were killed.
In its statement, Hamas’s Refugee Affairs Department said on Thursday that Palestine is an Arab, Islamic land, and no one could deter Palestinians from liberating each inch of Palestine.
The nation’s defeat in June 1967 does not mean a total surrender before the occupation, the statement said. The nation could never accept the international unfair resolutions that gave full recognition to Israel over the nation’s “usurped land”.
The statement stressed that the right of return of Palestinian refugees expelled in 1948 and 1967 is the main responsibility of Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims and the free world.
The Refugee Department called for supporting the steadfastness of Jerusalemites, calling on Arabs and Muslims to bear their responsibilities toward the holy city in light of the Israeli escalated Judaization schemes.
