Leader of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), Osama Hamdan, said – in a press conference – that Israeli prisoners will not return alive to their families unless the occupation government responds to the conditions of resistance, the first of which is a comprehensive cessation of aggression against the Gaza Strip.
He added – at the conference held in the Lebanese capital, Beirut – that the occupation forces did not commit a crime without committing it against the Palestinian people, in flagrant violation of international law with the support of the United States of America.
Hamdan described the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip as “catastrophic in every sense of the word,” and said that “those who did not die from bombing, burning, and sniping died from hunger, thirst, and disease, all of which have become American-Zionist weapons used against the Palestinian people.” He explained, “This situation makes us wait for the chief humanitarian coordinator, Sigret Kach.” “The newly appointed effective movements will end the suffering of the Palestinians, especially the areas of northern Gaza, which have reached the point of actual famine.”
The Hamas leader believed that the recent use of the US administration’s veto power to disrupt the cessation of the aggression against Gaza is a continuation of its efforts to tamper with international laws and regulations in favor of the occupying state. He called on the International Court of Justice not to yield to American pressures that seek to disrupt its work against the occupation.
