Hamas vehemently condemns the prison sentence given by the so-called Israeli Magistrate Court to Sheikh Raed Salah.
The Palestinian resistance movement deems Israeli rulings and measures as targeting of all free, national voices defending the Palestinian people, Jerusalem, and the al-Aqsa Mosque in the face of all Israeli projects and schemes.
This move reflects the extremist, racist demeanour of the Israeli bodies, above all Israeli judiciary system and courts.
These unfair rulings, which targets Sheikh Salah along with many Palestinian civilians, Jerusalemites, and defenders of the al-Aqsa Mosque, will not dissuade the Palestinian people and their national figures and scholars from assuming their duty towards Palestine and its people and holy sites. Rather, they will encourage the Palestinian people to come up with creative means of resistance in their fight against the occupation.
