Palestine to Be Liberated via Resistance: Islamic Jihad Leader
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader hailed a recent anti-Israeli operation in the city of Salfit in central West Bank and said Palestine’s occupied territories can be freed only through resistance.
“The heroes of the West Bank once again revived the resistance and the West Bank started a new phase through the Salfit operation,” Khaled Al-Batsh said, addressing a rally held in the occupied territories.
He also described the Palestinian issue as pivotal and said, “We will take back Palestine from the Zionist occupiers through resistance.”
The Islamic Jihad leader further called on all Palestinians to maintain their unity and prepare themselves for a new phase to neutralize the Israeli plots against Palestine.
In relevant remarks, the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, on Sunday hailed the "heroic" anti-occupation shooting operation near Ariel settlement in Salfit earlier in the day.
Hamas said in an official statement that the attack came in response to the Israeli crimes against Palestinians, including the latest attacks on Palestinian worshipers at al-Aqsa Mosque.
Two Israelis were killed on Sunday morning and two others injured in a Palestinian stabbing and shooting attack near Ariel settlement in Salfit.
