GAZA, (Alresalah. ps)– Deputy Head of Hamas political bureau, Ismail Haneyya, on Wednesday dubbed a UN report condemning the Israeli occupation for committing war crimes in Gaza, another proof of Israel’s terrorism and violation of international laws.
Haneyya urged, in his exclusive statements to the PIC, the Palestinian Authority to take advantage of the report and file a complaint with the International Criminal Court.
“The PA should be careful not to use the report as a bargaining chip for political maneuvers aimed at resuming negotiations,” he said.
Haneyya’s statements were released on the sidelines of an issue of a petition, said to be the largest of its kind, against illegal settlement and separation wall.
The petition, set to be submitted to the UN sometime soon, was signed by several political, national, and Islamic leaders, along with representatives of popular and civil organizations.
“We are here today to prove that Palestine is ours; that our rights are legitimate; and that the people of Gaza are keen on restoring Jerusalem and the other occupied Palestinian territories.”
“True, Gaza is blockaded; but it is free,” Haneyya said as he harked back to the victory achieved by the Palestinian resistance in last summer’s offensive on the besieged coastal enclave.
