The secretary general of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance movement has described resistance as the best option to terminate the Israeli regime’s decades-long occupation, stressing that the struggle will continue until final victory is achieved.

Addressing representatives of Palestinian factions in Syria during a meeting in the capital Damascus on Sunday, Ziyad al-Nakhalah reaffirmed the resistance front’s long-standing and unwavering commitment to continue fighting until full liberation of occupied lands.

“We will remain under occupation if we do not fight the enemy,” he emphasized.

Nakhalah further noted that the ongoing battle in Gaza represents an unprecedented challenge for both the Palestinian nation and their resistance groups.

“Gaza is a litmus test for all walks of our nation, who are suffering from occupation and forced displacement. Our countrymen and women are exhibiting an unprecedented level of resilience in Gaza, and the Zionist enemy is also facing the extent of steadfastness it has never experienced before,” the Islamic Jihad chief stated.

He went on to describe the ongoing struggle as an opportunity for all to fight off the usurping Zionist entity, underscoring that resistance against the enemy remains the only way to liberation from occupation.

“The path to resistance is the best option to end the Zionist occupation” Nakhalah underlined, pointing to the enormous sacrifices that all Palestinians have made in this regard.

Israel unleashed its war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group carried out Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

The Tel Aviv regime has also imposed a “complete siege” on the territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.

Since the start of the offensive, the Tel Aviv regime has killed 35,034 Palestinians and injured 78,755 others.
