Spokesperson of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas Musheer Al-Masri said on Tuesday evening that his movement’s commitment to the truce is based on how much the Israeli occupation is committed to implementing all of what was agreed upon during the indirect talks in Cairo.
According to Anadolu news agency, Al-Masri made the remarks while addressing hundreds of supporters of his movement who were gathered in the north of the Gaza Strip to show their anger over the security cooperation between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Israel.
It is widely believed that this on-going security cooperation is what led to the killing of two Palestinian men early on Tuesday morning in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
“The Israeli occupation does not have any choice except a complete commitment to all the terms of the ceasefire deal—taking the track that the Palestinian resistance has drawn through the indirect talks in Cairo,” Anadolu quoted Al-Masri as saying.
The senior Hamas official reiterated that his movement has the “means of strength” to oblige the Israeli occupation to “kneel down” before the demands of the Palestinian resistance.
He also called for Palestinians in the occupied West Bank to start a new comprehensive intifada against the Israeli occupation.
In addition, he blamed security cooperation between the PA and the Israeli occupation for the killing of the two Palestinian men in Hebron, whom Hamas’s military wing said were members.
