The Great March of Return will reach its peak on May 15 –the day which marks the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, Senior member of Hamas Political Bureau Khalil al-Hayya said on Sunday.
During the funeral of four Palestinian resistance fighters killed in an explosion in Gaza’s southern city of Rafah, al-Hayya stated: “The Great March of Return is one of the tools used by the Palestinian resistance to confront the Israeli occupation.”
“Our people’s will is far stronger than Israel’s barbed wire and apartheid fences separating the Gaza Strip from territories occupied in 1948,” he said. “The Israelis should wait for May 15, the day when the wind will be taken out of their sail by the Palestinian masses. Our ultimate destination is Occupied Jerusalem.”
