A mass-rally was held by Hamas on Thursday evening in the Lebanese city of Sur (Tyre) to speak up for holy al-Aqsa Mosque.
Hamas leader Jihad Taha and Abdul Majid al-Awad, along with a number of scholars and civil society representatives, joined the rally.
Taha said Israel’s removal of the metal detectors and security installations around al-Aqsa Mosque is a historic victory achieved by the Palestinians.
“Israel’s criminal policy will never dampen our people’s spirits. The Palestinians will keep yearning for victory and freedom until every single inch of the occupied territories is liberated,” added Taha.
“The only way to retrieve our rights is to prop up resistance and anti-occupation uprisings,” the Hamas leader further stated, calling on Arabs and Muslim to stand up for al-Aqsa and the Palestinian cause.
