Moussa Abu Marzouk, one of the leaders of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), this Wednesday raised the possibility that a ceasefire could be reached in Gaza within “a day or two,” as he said in an interview for Lebanese television channel Al Mayads.
“I hope that within a day or two a ceasefire will be reached,” which “will be coordinated jointly,” said Marzouk, who has made it clear that this pact “is related to the Gaza Strip and does not include the places of confrontation in the West Bank and the inside “.
“I believe the ongoing ceasefire efforts will be successful,” Hamas said ‘number two’ abroad. However, he stressed that “the talks are only about a ceasefire” but “without stopping any other form of resistance”.
“Jerusalem is a red line and the battle was started in support of Al Aqsa and the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah (…). Our equation is clear: bombing after bombing, escalation after escalation,” explained Marzouk, who was considering the resistance if Hamas will “force” Israeli Prime Minister Benajmin Netanyahu not to “violate the rights of the Palestinians in Jerusalem and Al Aqsa”.
Marzouk has also estimated that Netantahu is “very concerned” about the possibility of a Hamas victory and the “failure” of its policies to verify the “unprecedented sympathy that has existed among the peoples of the world” for the Palestinian cause and nation.
During the interview, Marzouk also denied the rumors of the possible death during an Israeli offensive of Muhammad al Deif, the commander in chief of the Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas in the battle, “which is all right” and is leading the battle. “
Finally, he asked the Arab nations that “normalized the Israeli occupation” to reconsider their position “after the crimes committed” in recent days, and criticized the United States for refusing to accept “Israel’s aggression in the Security Council “to be discussed by the United Nations.
