Hamas on Friday re-affirmed its commitment to ending its decade-long rift with rival Palestinian faction Fatah.
In a statement marking the 31st anniversary of its establishment, Hamas reiterated its call to achieve inter-Palestinian reconciliation “based on [Palestinian] national principles, the reform of the Palestine Liberation Organization, and our legitimate right to resist [Israel’s] occupation”.
Hamas also stressed the importance of implementing the terms of past reconciliation agreements with Fatah.
The movement went on to restate its continued rejection of any form of “normalization” with Israel, vowing to continue its resistance activities “by any means necessary”.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
