Bij het plaatje hierboven van heden namiddag, 7 augustus 2014 in Gaza.
Duizenden Gazanen zwaaien met de gekende groene vlaggen van Hamas uit sympathie voor de terreurgroep en eisen de hervatting van de oorlog tegen Israël, onmiddellijk nadat het staakt-het-vuren morgenochtend om 7u00 is verstreken. Tenzij Israël volledig instemt met het eisenpakket van Hamas.
Bericht uit The Times of Israel:
A senior Hamas official tells supporters at the demonstration that the war with Israel won’t be over until the group’s political goals are reached. The official, Mushir al-Masri, says “our fingers are on the trigger and our rockets are trained at Tel Aviv.”
He says Hamas would never consider disarmament, declaring: “we are not going to relinquish [our arms] until all our lands are liberated.”
Al-Masri also warns the Israeli residents of the Gaza border towns not to return home. “The settlers should not return to their homes unless Netanyahu complies with our demands,” he says.
He tells the crowds that Hamas will never forgo its “sacred” weapons, and still has many “surprises” prepared for the enemy. However, he adds that Hamas is fully behind the Palestinian delegation in Egypt.
At the protest, al-Masri declares that Hamas is the clear victor in the confrontation with Israel. “Netanyahu failed,” he says, according to Channel 2. “Our rockets reached Tel Aviv and Hadera and even Nahariya.” But the greatest achievement, he says, is that “for the first time, an Arab force infiltrated the occupied lands held by the Zionists and this is a strategic victory.”
