Hamas vows to deal ‘seriously’ with any agreement that meets its demands

Hamas has vowed to “deal seriously and positively” with any potential truce agreement that would meet the Palestinian resistance movement’s demands.

The movement’s Political Bureau Chief, Ismail Haniyeh made the remarks in a statement on Wednesday.

He cataloged the movement’s demands as “the total halt of the aggression, complete withdrawal, and the exchange of prisoners.”

The Israeli regime has been waging a genocidal war against the Gaza Strip, which is ruled by the movement, since October 7 when the coastal sliver’s resistance groups launched Al-Aqsa Storm, a retaliatory operation against the occupied territories.

At least 36,550 Palestinians have been killed, most of them women and children, and another 82,959 individuals have sustained injuries in the war. More than 1.7 million people have been internally displaced during the brutal military onslaught as well.

Egypt and Qatar have been mediating negotiations aimed at conclusion of a ceasefire agreement following one in November, during which Hamas released 105 of the captives that had been seized during Al-Aqsa Storm.

In early May, Hamas agreed to another truce proposal enabling cessation of the Israeli aggression and release of the rest of the captives. The Israeli regime, however, rejected the proposal.

Adding to his remarks, Haniyeh said, “The Hamas movement is conducting the negotiations armed with this position, which represents the will of our people and their brave resistance.”

Elsewhere in his comments, the Hamas’ leader pointed to a march that was staged earlier on Wednesday by thousands of illegal Israeli settlers through a Palestinian neighborhood of the holy occupied city of al-Quds.

The march took place on the occasion of the contentious Flag Day procession, which marks the conclusion of the Israeli regime’s Western-backed Six-Day War of 1967 that led to its illegal occupation of the Palestinian territory of the West Bank, including East al-Quds.

The Israeli regime considers all of al-Quds, including its eastern sector, as its “eternal and undivided” capital.

“The rampage of settlers in al-Quds confirms that al-Quds is the focus of the conflict, and our people will not rest until the occupation ends and an independent Palestinian state is established with al-Quds as its capital,” Haniyeh, however, said.
