A top Hamas official says the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, will rain down its rockets on Israel as long as the new wave of attacks by the Tel Aviv regime on the Gaza Strip continues.

“If the Israeli aggression continues, it is clear that the Ezzedeen al-Qassam Brigades and Hamas will attack the Israelis, the Israeli soldiers and the Israeli decision-makers,” Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, said at a press conference in Gaza on Thursday.
He added, “We will launch our rockets just like rain. Rains of rockets will pour down on them.”

The new wave of Israeli aggression on Gaza has claimed at least 17 lives since Wednesday. Ahmed al-Ja’abari, the popular and influential head of the Hamas military wing, the Ezzedeen al-Qassam Brigades, was assassinated in an Israeli attack on his car on Wednesday.

To shed more light on the issue Press TV’s News Analysis, has interviewed Lawrence Korb, with the Center for American Progress, from New York City  and Adie Mormech, a human rights activist, from the Gaza Strip and Saeb Shaath, an author and Middle East expert.

Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
The apartheid regime of Israel denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages, and adequate healthcare and education.

UAE stabbed Palestine in back by normalising with Zionist entity ‘Israel’

Abbas :You cannot take our place…Palestine speaks in its own name. She is who will say ‘yes’ or ‘no’

SaebPress

on Tuesday, the Palestinian leadership held a meeting in West bank city of Ramallah, which was also attended by representatives of different Palestinian factions, including Islamic Jihad and Hamas.

Abbas condemned the UAE’s decision to normalise ties with Zionist entity”Israel”, saying it was a “stab in the back of the Palestinian people.”

Abbas accused the UAE of turning its back on Palestinians while trying to justify the deal with Zionist entity “Israel” by arguing it helped stop West bank annexations.

“They added the term annexation and attempted to give the others and the world the illusion that the UAE had come up with a great achievement for us and that is the rejection of annexation, as if the Palestinian issue is only about annexation while they disregard everything else: the rights of the Palestinian people, the Palestinian state, the two-state vision, holy Jerusalem [al-Quds]….This is deception, and this is totally unacceptable. We consider it a stab in the back of the Palestinian cause,” he emphasised.

Abbas also stressed that only the Palestinians have the right to speak on the Palestine issue. 

“You cannot can take our place…Palestine speaks in its own name. She is who will say ‘yes’ or ‘no’. You [are] not responsible for the Palestinian cause, we alone, the Palestinians here, will speak on behalf of the Palestinian cause,” he said.

Palestinians ‘united against conspiracy’

Additionally, Abbas hailed the presence of representative from different Palestinian factions at Tuesday’s meeting as a show of unity.

“I welcome our brothers in Hamas, Jihad, General Command and Al-Saiqa who are here today. This indicates that the Palestinian people are united against the conspiracy, regardless of the differences between us, but in adversity we stand together and have on position against anyone who wants to attack our cause,” he said.

Abbas reminded the Arab countries that based on the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative any normalisation with Zionist entity “Israel” should come after an agreement is reached between the Palestinians and Tel Aviv, and not the other way around.

“Some countries have begun moving, both openly and in secret…this is rejected, and we the Palestinians will continue to absolutely reject this, no matter which country does this. You must respect the decisions on which you have signed off,” he said.

On Tuesday, “Israeli” media cited Sudanese foreign ministry spokesman as announcing an “impending” normalisation agreement with Tel Aviv. Sudan’s acting foreign minister, however, denied knowledge of such talks with Zionist entity “Israel”.

Shaath, ”to start with there is no real sovereignty For Mohamed bin Zayed or these ‎Sheikhes over the UAE, its controlled by the Multinational companies, since the British ‎withdrawn from it in 1970, they kept these tribal leaders under tight control of the ‎Multinationals.‎

Transcription of some of what Dr. Shaath said ‎
Shaath, ”to start with there is no real sovereignty For Mohamed bin Zayed or these ‎Sheikhes over the UAE, its controlled by the Multinational companies, since the British ‎withdrawn from it in 1970, they kept these tribal leaders under tight control of the ‎Multinationals.‎”


‎ Shaath added “At the end of the day, to me, they are still a colony. They have been used by the Americans [Emirates] in ‎the waves of attacks came against Iraq in the [American invasion ] 2003 as well as the American ‎used them, as your guest mentioned they are used by ‘Israel’ to spy on Iran, they have their ‎cooperation under the table, it became very hard to hide it, the official visits ‎of Israeli ministers, officials, sport teams and many other exchanges between the ‎Emirates and ‘Israel’, so they could not hide it any more.‎”


Shaath went to say, “the other crucial point During the 2014 Zionist criminal war on Gaza, the ‎UAE sent a team of 50 doctors from the UAE red cross. The Palestinian ‎resistance stated then that these 50 doctors are Zionists spies collecting ‎information on the Palestinian resistance positions, while they supposed to ‎be an assistant from UAE. Then they were deported out of the Gaza Strip at ‎that time.‎”
Shaath “Recently The United Emirates exchanging a lot of trade and were doing a lot of ‎security deals and wheeling with the Zionist entity sending its aeroplanes to ‎Bin Gorian Airport, that under the cover and camouflaging it as they were ‎providing medical support to the Palestinians to overcome the Corona ‎pandemic,”.

Shaath continued to say that ” while the Palestinians’ refused to receive that aid and told them ‎[UAE] that they are betraying us, when we told you we refuse to receive anything ‎that coming through the Zionist entity airports , this is a normalising of ‎relationship between the Emirates and the Zionist entity. Still, , they ‎continued to send their aeroplanes, all of that is to cover up what type of loads ‎that the Emirates is bring back to Abu Dhabi from Tel Aviv .‎
