| News

A delegation from the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas in the Gaza Strip, headed by Hamas’ deputy chief in the Gaza Strip Khalil al-Hayya, met United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Tor Wennesland.

The Hamas officials discussed various issues with Wennesland, most importantly the serious repercussions for the Palestinian people, occupied Jerusalem, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque under the incoming Zionist government and its racist schemes.

The delegation reiterated that the Palestinian people and parties have the right to resist the Israeli occupation and that the occupation’s provocative policy in occupied Jerusalem and the blessed Mosque would plunge Palestine into escalation.

Gaza is an integral part of occupied Palestine, said the delegation, and is seriously concerned about the situation in occupied Jerusalem, West Bank, and the 1948 occupied territory.

During the meeting, they called on the international community to abandon double standards and take practical measures to end the Israeli occupation’s continued aggression against the Palestinian people and holy places.

The international community is concerned about the latest Israeli election outcomes and the rise of extremist right-wing parties to power, said the UN coordinator.

They also discussed the dire humanitarian situation in the blockaded Gaza Strip.
