The Deputy Chairman of Hamas has said that the Palestinian resistance in the occupied West Bank is the legitimate exercise of the people’s right to confront the Israeli occupation in all its forms. It will not end, insisted Moussa Abu Marzouk, until the occupation ends.
Writing on his Facebook page on Thursday, the Hamas official stressed that the heroic resistance in Jerusalem and the West Bank is a duty on every Palestinian and an act of pride. “Those injured, arrested or even killed are victims of the infamous security coordination,” he added, in a clear reference to the coordination between Israeli security agencies and the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority.
Meanwhile, Israeli forces shot and killed Falah Hamdi Abu Maria on Thursday. The 53-year old from Beit Ummar village, north of Hebron, was shot after troops raided his home and wounded his son.
