Head of Hamas’s political bureau Khaled Mishaal has said that the Palestinian people will uphold the path of resistance and struggle against the Israeli occupation until they liberate Jerusalem, the Aqsa Mosque and the prisoners, and return to their homes.
This came in a telephone call on Sunday evening with the father of martyr Misbah Abu Subaih, who carried out a drive-by shooting attack in Occupied Jerusalem earlier on the same day.
Mishaal offered his condolences to the father and family of the martyr, and congratulated them on the martyrdom of their son and the great sacrifice he had made in defense of his own people and homeland. Abu Subaih carried out a shooting attack aboard a vehicle on Sunday morning in east Jerusalem, wounding six Israeli and killing two others.
Later, Hamas claimed the shooter as one of its members, and hailed the operation as “heroic and a natural response to Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians and their holy sites.”
