The Palestinian mass participation in the 78th Friday of the Great Return March proves that the weekly, popular protests have become a regular resistance action against the Israeli occupation, Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qasem said Friday.
In a press release, Qasem stressed that the Palestinian participation in the Great Return March indicated that Israeli attempts to suppress the popular, peaceful demonstrations have failed.
Qasem pointed out that Israeli crimes against Palestinians would not dissuade them from achieving their long sought-after demands, above all breaking the Gaza siege.
“These masses that have been taking part at the [Great Return March] protests support every effort to achieve national unity on the basis of partnership and marinating national constants,” added Qasem.
Qasem reaffirmed that the Palestinian people would continue their peaceful, popular demonstrations until their demands are fulfilled, noting that the Great Return March is one of the best forms of the Palestinian resistance against the occupation.
