Senior Hamas official Osama Hamdan says that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “insistence on continuing the aggression” in Gaza proves that the goal of the war against Hamas is “genocide against the Palestinian people.”

“We will exert every effort to protect our people, whether through the resistance on the ground or… political efforts to stop the aggression,” the Lebanon-based Hamas official adds.

His comments come after Netanyahu dismissed Hamas’s demand for a ceasefire and an end to the war in the Gaza Strip as part of their conditions for a hostage deal.
