Palestinian groups laud resistance fighters’ ‘heroic’ battle against Israel

Head of the political bureau of the Palestinian Hamas resistance group Ismail Haniyeh (C), the Islamic Jihad’s deputy chief Mohammad al-Hindi (R), and Jamil Mazhar, deputy secretary general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, meet in an unspecified location on April 27, 2024.

Palestinian factions have praised resistance fighters for their “heroic” battle against the Israeli aggression, saying they framed a new model of resilience against the enemy.

In a statement released on Saturday, the Palestinian resistance group of Hamas said that the head of its political bureau Ismail Haniyeh, the Islamic Jihad’s deputy chief Mohammad al-Hindi, and Jamil Mazhar, deputy secretary general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), had held a meeting.

“The attendees praised the courageous, heroic performance of all the resistance brigades and their field unity … that have given and continue to give the enemy a lesson it will never forget,” the statement read.

“They presented the world with a new model in conflict management” and confronting the aggression.

They also hailed the “legendary steadfastness” and “solid will” of the Palestinian people amid Israel’s genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.

They further discussed efforts towards putting an end to the Gaza onslaught and an Israeli withdrawal of forces from the besieged territory, as well as the release of Palestinian abductees held in the occupying regime's jails.

Israel waged its brutal war against Gaza on October 7 after Hamas carried out a historic operation against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

The Tel Aviv regime has so far killed at least 34,388 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 77,437 others.

Also in their meeting, the representatives of the Palestinian groups emphasized the need for developing cooperation in order to thwart the occupation's schemes and secure a free and independent Palestine.

They lauded the global support for the Palestinian people and their cause and sent greetings to the resistance front from Lebanon to Yemen, Syria, Iraq, and Iran.

In another development on Saturday, Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud hosted a ministerial meeting in Riyadh with representatives from five other Arab states on the situation in Gaza.

The meeting was attended by Jordanian and Egyptian foreign ministers Ayman Safadi and Sameh Shoukry, as well as Secretary of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization Hussein Al-Sheikh, diplomatic adviser to the UAE president Anwar Gargash, and Qatar's Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Mohammed bin Abdulaziz Al Khulaifi, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported. 

The participants underlined the need to stop the Israeli carnage, reach an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, protect civilians, and lift all restrictions that impede the entry of humanitarian aid into the blockaded Palestinian territory.

Additionally, they expressed their support for all efforts aimed at the international recognition of an independent Palestinian state on the pre-1967 borders with East al-Quds as its capital. 

They further denounced a potential Israeli offensive on the southern Gaza city of Rafah and attempts to forcibly displace the Palestinian people from their land.
