Head of Hamas political bureau Khaled Meshaal asserted that the battle with the Israelis occurs within the waning Zionist entity which occupies the Palestinians’ homeland.
Meshaal added that Gaza invalidated the Zionist deterrence theory, adding that will never be able to launch peek wars after it was defeated by the Palestinian resistance “whose military performance shocked the Israelis”.
In a press conference in Doha, Meshaal called on the Palestinian government and the international community to relieve the Gazans and to reconstruct their city, demanding Egypt to reopen Rafah crossing.
Meshaal also refused any attempt to disarm the Palestinian resistance.
“The weapons of the resistance are sacred, and we will not accept that they be on the agenda” of future negotiations with ‘Israel’, Meshaal underscored.
