Factions meeting in Gaza
In the same context, the Palestinian factions began a meeting in the Gaza Strip today, Tuesday, to discuss ways to respond to Israel in light of its continued siege on the Strip and the attack on the city of Jerusalem.
Anadolu Agency reported that the meeting of the Palestinian factions was held in the office of the head of Hamas, Yahya Sinwar, in Gaza City.
The meeting comes after a meeting held yesterday, Monday, between the Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Tor Wencesland, and Al-Sinwar, to discuss efforts to stabilize the ceasefire and ease the siege on Gaza.
A member of the Political Bureau of the Democratic Front, Talal Abu Zarifa, told Anadolu Agency that the meeting of the factions is discussing ways and means to respond to the occupation in light of its aggression against the city of Jerusalem and the continuation of the siege on the Strip.
Abu Zarifa pointed out that the occupation wants to link the file of the reconstruction of Gaza and the opening of the crossings to the file of the Israeli soldiers captured by the resistance, and this we do not accept. Soldiers are in exchange for Palestinian prisoners.
Earlier, Sinwar said, after a meeting with Wencesland, that the meeting was bad, and not positive at all.
He added that Israel is still continuing its hostile policies against the people and prisoners, and there are no signs that the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip has been resolved, and that it is blackmailing the resistance in the matter of relieving Gaza.
On May 22, a ceasefire began between the Palestinian factions and Israel under Egyptian auspices, ending an 11-day military confrontation.
Last weekend, Israel launched raids on Hamas-affiliated sites, in response to what it said were the launching of incendiary balloons from the Strip.
