BEIRUT, (PIC)– Hamas on Friday spoke out against the persecution and ad hominem campaigns to which the Movement has been subjected, vowing to keep defending al-Aqsa until liberation comes true. Speaking in a statement issued on the occasion of the International Day in Solidarity with Occupied Jerusalem, Hamas sounded the alarm over the mayhem endured by the Arab nation. “Israel has taken advantage of Arabs’ preoccupation with their home affairs to step up aggression and violence against the Palestinian people,” said Hamas. “Every single inch of occupied Palestine and occupied Jerusalem is in itself a cause backed up by all Muslims and Arabs,” the statement further read. Hamas hailed all those who spoke up for the Palestinian people and supported armed resistance. The group vowed to keep defending Muslims’ the al-Aqsa Mosque and propping up anti-occupation activism in the West Bank and Jerusalem no matter the stakes. Hamas called on Arabs and Muslims to combine forces in the face of the Israeli occupation and its allies. The resistance movement further hailed the anti-occupation protesters who have sacrificed their souls and bodies for Occupied Jerusalem and al-Aqsa.
