Hamas leader touts victory over IDF, imminent removal of Gaza blockade

Hamas Prime Minister in the Gaza Strip Ismail Haniyeh says in a recording broadcast this evening that the past month’s conflict with Israel will bring the end of the siege on the Palestinian territory.

In his first public remarks since the ceasefire took effect this morning, Haniyeh says that “the military victory of the resistance and the legendary, strong resilience of our people will bring us the removal of the blockade on the Gaza Strip.

“The pictures of the destruction are great proof of the defeat of the IDF and its failure to contend with the brave resistance,” adds Haniyeh.

“We will be faithful to our people who were harmed by the brutal aggression,” he continues. “The blood of the slain and the injured that was spilled is the responsibility of the leadership; we will not neglect it.”
