Haniyeh on Nakba anniversary: Israel's expulsion from our Land is Unavoidable.

Ismile Hannier, the director of the Palestinian resistance movement, has expressed certainty about the potential of the Erali administration in all territory in Palestine.

Hamas leaders said in a speech on Wednesday. This day marks the historic exodus of Palestinians from their homeland by the Israeli regime and its Western backers in 1948, and is known to Palestinians as the Nakba, or Day of the Catastrophe. "Israel's withdrawal from our land is a Quranic necessity and a historical truth," he asserted.

"They wanted the Nakba to destroy the Palestinians and end their sacred cause," Haniyeh said. “Yet, the Palestinian cause remains strong in the consciousness of our people, our nation, and the free people of the world.”

‘Al-Aqsa Storm prelude to liberation’

The Palestinian leader vowed that the anti-Israeli operation that was staged by the Gaza Strip-based resistance movements on October 7 served as a “a prelude to liberation and independence.”

Haniyeh noted how the operation saw Palestinian fighters’ “storming their (the Israeli regime’s) fortified strongholds and humiliating the [Israeli] army [which was] once thought as invincible.”

“We have seen how they behave, attempting to cover their failure and shame with massacres, killings, and torture,” he stated.

The Hamas’ official was referring to a genocidal war that the regime launched following Al-Aqsa Storm, through which it has so far killed more than 35,170 Palestinians, mostly women and children.

‘Hamas here to stay’

“We say that Hamas is here to stay,” Haniyeh insisted, dismissing the Israeli regime and its supporters’ allegations that the movement could be ousted from Gaza’s rule through the war.

“The movement will continue its efforts to stop this brutal aggression by all possible means,” he stated, adding, “We are confident this aggression will be broken and will be expelled from our land, no matter how long it takes.”

The Hamas’ leader said the management of Gaza after the war was to be solely decided by the movement in cooperation with the national consensus. Regarding the possibility of a ceasefire

Meanwhile, Haniyeh insisted that any agreement to end Israeli aggression must guarantee a permanent ceasefire and the complete withdrawal of regime forces from the entire Gaza Strip.

He also said a "genuine" prisoner exchange deal must be offered, guaranteeing the return of displaced people, ensuring the rebuilding of the Gaza Strip and allowing the Israeli regime to lift the blockade it simultaneously imposed on the coastal region. explained. A Hamas spokesperson noted that the movement had recently responded positively to a cease-fire proposal put forward by Egyptian and Qatari mediators, but rejected by the Israeli regime.

"The actions of the occupiers in the face of various proposals confirm their deliberate intention to continue the invasion and war, showing no concern for the prisoners of war or their fate," Haniyeh said. Iran’s true promise, op. It has become clear that Israel needs protection.”

Elsewhere in his speech, Hamas leaders welcomed Iran's April 14 retaliatory operation against the Israeli regime. "We also very much appreciate the blow inflicted by the Islamic Republic of Iran on the Zionist enemy and how he demonstrated the need for this enemy in defense," he said.



During the operation, Iran released more than 300 drones and missiles in military bases in the territories occupied by Israeli. The large-scale attack, codenamed Operation True Promise, saw Israel attack the Iranian consulate in the Syrian capital Damascus, killing 13 people, including seven military advisers from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). It was a response to what happened. .
