The head of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Al-Sinwar, said that the Palestinian people will soon meet with victory and liberation and pray at Al-Aqsa Mosque as a result of the resistance’s achievements, while the Israeli cabinet meets to discuss the security situation in the Strip.
Sinwar said – during a conference of dignitaries and clans in Gaza – that the character of the Palestinians has not changed after the campaigns of Arab normalization with the Israeli occupation.
He pointed out that the people of Gaza were the ones who achieved victory, with the oppression, hunger, siege and destruction they endured over the past years.
Israeli media sources said that the meeting will discuss scenarios that will be presented by the leaders of the security services and the army to deal with Gaza, including presenting a plan drawn up by the Israeli army for renewed fighting in Gaza.
This comes after the new Israeli government held its first meeting since it was granted confidence and took the constitutional oath last Sunday.
On May 21, a ceasefire began between the Palestinian factions and Israel under Egyptian auspices, ending an 11-day military confrontation.
The Palestinian factions demanded a complete lifting of the siege on Gaza and allow the reconstruction process, but Israel linked allowing reconstruction and returning 4 prisoners held by Hamas in Gaza, which the movement rejected, as it demands the conclusion of an exchange deal that includes detainees.
Last weekend, Israel launched raids on Hamas sites, which it said came in response to the launching of incendiary balloons from the Strip.
