GAZA STRIP (Press TV) – The leader of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas in the besieged Gaza Strip asserts that al-Aqsa Mosque will be liberated from the clutches of the Zionist regime through the efforts of all Palestinian factions in the near future.
Speaking at a conference on supporting the Palestinian resistance and al-Quds on Sunday, Yahya al-Sinwar said all sections of the Palestinian society will win a victory at the battle of al-Quds.
Sinwar further said that the Palestinian people are close to liberating al-Aqsa Mosque and holding prayers there, according to Palestine’s Shehab news agency.
“I am sure many of you who have reached old age will have a youthful spirit on the day of the great uprising and will vie with the youth to take the Kalashnikov.”
According to Sinwar, the position of the Palestinians has not changed with regard to the actions of certain countries to normalize relations with the Zionist regime.
Zionist troops recently stormed al-Aqsa Mosque compound in al-Quds, and attacked Palestinians who condemned insults by settlers against Islam’s revered Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
Palestinians staged the rally after Friday noon prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque compound, days after the far-right Zionist settlers marched through the holy city to celebrate the regime’s seizure and subsequent occupation of East al-Quds in 1967.
Palestinians view the so-called “march of the flags” as provocative because settlers seek to display their ‘dominance’ over the occupied region.
On Tuesday, the Zionist regime launched airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, breaching a unilateral ceasefire on May 21 which ended 11 days of continuous airstrikes on Gaza. The war by the Zionist regime on Gaza killed over 260 Palestinians, including 66 children, and displaced tens of thousands of Palestinians in the besieged enclave.
The war on Gaza was provoked by the regime’s continued acts of violence against Palestinians in the West Bank, including attempts to displace Palestinians in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and violence by Zionist troops and settlers against worshippers at al-Aqsa Mosque.
