What about the resistance?
He continued, “The people did not leave their land, so what about the resistance that defends the people? Talk about the resistance leaving and leaving its land is an illusion, and the idea of disarming the resistance is naive and does not reflect an understanding of the facts of the matter.”
Hamdan considered the Hebrew media’s talk about this initiative to be “an operation of deception and misinformation to calm the angry street, especially the families of the prisoners who are watching their sons being killed at the hands of the occupation without caring about them (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu“.
