Top Hamas leader: Six-month war ‘will break Zionist enemy soon’, final round hasn’t started yet

Head of Hamas political office in the diaspora Khaled Meshaal has praised the heroic steadfastness of the Gaza Strip, saying the six-month-old Palestinian battle with Israel will “break the enemy soon.”

Meshaal made the remarks at an event in the Qatari capital of Doha to mourn members of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh’s family, who were killed in an Israeli air strike against the al-Shati refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip on Wednesday.

“This is not the final round,” Meshaal said, referring to the ongoing Palestinian resistance against the Israeli onslaught. “It is an important round on the path of liberating Palestine and defeating the Zionist project.”

Hamas spokesman Abdul Latif al-Qanou said Israel has infringed upon all humanitarian principles and international law.

“The occupying Zionist regime intensified the genocide of Palestinians during the Eid al-Fitr holidays. Hundreds of people got killed as civilian vehicles, crowded markets and residential houses were bombed by occupation forces without paying little heed to the religious sentiments of Muslims and respecting their rituals,” Qanou told Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen television.

“Criminal occupiers disrespected the holy month of Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr festivities, and ramped up the massacre of civilians instead. They committed more crimes by violating all international and humanitarian regulations.”
