Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haneyya said “The Palestinian prisoners’ file will remain open and will not close until all of the prisoners are released”, calling on the Islamic peoples “from Tangiers to Jakarta to participate in the Great Aqsa Intifada.”
In a speech on Saturday marking the two-year anniversary of Wafa al-Ahrar prisoner exchange deal, Haneyya vowed to liberate all the prisoners from Israeli prisons, saying that their release is on the top of his government’s priorities.
Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, made a great victory by accomplishing the exchange deal especially by keeping Shalit for five years and freeing more than one thousand prisoners, he said.
He greeted all the resistance elements who participated in this historic achievement topped by the martyr Ahmed Jabari.
He also expressed his appreciation to Egypt due to its role in the exchange deal and for its continued efforts along the past years, stressing the Palestinian people and government and Hamas movement’s commitment to the Egyptian stability and national security.
Haneyya renewed the Palestinian adherence to the national constants and fundamental rights despite all difficulties and plights, saying that resistance is the strategic option to the conflict in the region.
The Palestinian Prime Minister in Gaza Strip affirmed that thousands of resistance elements above the ground and under the ground are preparing for the liberation battle of Palestine.
He said that resistance stands firmly against any plots against the Palestinian people and their legitimate rights.
PM Haneyya stressed his trust in the Arab peoples who broke the silence and refused the injustice and supported al-Aqsa mosque and Jerusalem. “Our greetings to the activists all over the world who support the Palestinian people, especially Rachel Corrie”, he said.
He also renewed confidence in his movement that is still, since more than a quarter of a century, adherent to the resistance option and the Palestinian people’s rights and constants.
The prime minister warned of the Israeli schemes to divide al-Aqsa mosque spatially and temporally by allowing Israeli settlers and soldiers to break into al-Aqsa Mosque as a prelude to demolish it.
The Israeli occupation is using security coordination to liquidate resistance and the ongoing negotiation as a cover to the occupation, he added.
Al-Aqsa Mosque is part of the Muslim faith, he said, adding, “the Israeli crimes inside Al Aqsa mosque will not give them any right in it”.
Haneyya called for intensifying the Palestinian presence in al-Aqsa mosque, praising the Palestinian popular and armed resistance in the West Bank.
He strongly condemned all forms of security coordination and the persecution of resistance elements in West Bank, praising the latest resistance activities in West Bank.
“There will be no security or stability in the region as long as Al-Aqsa mosque is in danger,” he affirmed.
