The Hamas resistance movement has called on Palestinian figures to support national unity, underlining the need for an “all-out confrontation” against the Israeli occupation and normalization conspiracies.

In a letter sent to 5,000 Palestinian figures on Thursday, Hamas leader in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Sinwar, said the materialization of unity among the nation is “a strategic goal.”

He also warned of the threats posed to the Palestinian cause, urging an “all-out confrontation” by various Palestinian groups and people against US President Donald Trump’s self-proclaimed “deal of the century,” the Israeli annexation of the West Bank and the issue of compromise with the Tel Aviv regime.

The Hamas leadership is at the heart of all nationalist efforts against the plots aimed at the occupation of Palestinian lands and the normalization with Israel, he added.

Sinwar further detailed the recent meetings held with the participation of Palestinian factions, stressing that more reconciliation talks require solidarity in national efforts.

At a joint press conference on July 2, the Gaza-headquartered Hamas and the Fatah political party, based in the West Bank, pledged unity against Israel’s annexation of Palestinian areas and vowed to “topple” Trump's Middle East scheme.

‘No more Gaza siege’

Separately on Thursday, deputy Hamas leader in Gaza Khalil al-Hayya referred to the process of national reconciliation among the Palestinians.

Speaking to Al-Aqsa TV channel, he explained that Hamas members had exchanged views with the Egyptian authorities on bilateral relations and the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip as well as ways to achieve national reconciliation and end internal rifts.

Hayya also noted that although the short-lived ceasefire with the Zionist occupiers is coming to an end, they still insist on their cruel siege of the coastal sliver.

“Hamas will not accept the continuation of the siege,” he emphasized.

The Palestinian people are being threatened by the occupiers every day, so the nation must achieve national unity and solidarity in order to confront the Israeli measures, he added.

Gaza has been under Israeli siege since June 2007, which has caused a decline in living standards.

Israel has also launched three major wars against the enclave since 2008, killing thousands of Gazans each time and shattering the impoverished territory’s already poor infrastructure.

The crippling blockade has caused a decline in the standard of living as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty in the Gaza Strip.
