Head of Hamas Political Bureau Ismail Haniyeh offered his congratulations to Custodian of Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud on the success of 41st Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) summit organised in the north-western Saudi city of Al-Ula.

In a letter sent to the Saudi King, Haniyeh welcomed Al-Ula Declaration, which put an end “disputes among brothers, healed the division and enhanced unity and rapprochement between them, as well as boosted the joint Arab work in order to reinforce development and cooperation in all fields.” 

Haniyeh expressed his movement’s appreciation for the efforts exerted by Saudi Arabia in this regard, which is a “continuation of its historic role of embracing and defending the issues of the Arab world.”

In a separate letter, Haniyeh hailed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for this role in making the 41st GCC’s summit succeed and accomplishing Gulf reconciliation. 

 “Hamas views this reconciliation as an important step to reinforce the joint action in favour of the Palestinian cause, amid the challenges facing it, including the occupation, siege, Judaisation and the attempts to liquidate and abolish it,” Haniyeh concluded.
