| Statements

Head of Hamas Political Bureau Ismail Haniyeh, has phoned Ziyad al-Nakhalah, secretary-general of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and sent his condolences to the Islamic Jihad’s leadership and families of Palestinian martyrs, above Baha Abu al-Ata’s family.

The Palestinian blood will remain the fuel of the steadfastness of Palestinian people and a curse chasing the occupiers.

Both officials discussed the close relationship between Hamas and Islamic Jihad.  

The senior Palestinian officials praised the role of Palestinian resistance in defending its people despite the fact that the Israeli occupation has committed massacres against whole Palestinian families, citing the Abu Malhous’ massacre.

Haniyeh and al-Nakhalah have agreed on bolstering collaboration and coordination between their movements and with other Palestinian factions at this critical stage.

The Hamas chief stressed that his movement will unify and continue supporting all Palestinian factions under any circumstance.
