Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh says Palestinians “will not sit with their arms crossed” in the face of Israeli “aggression” against the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.

Speaking in Beirut after a barrage of rockets was fired from Lebanon toward Israel, Haniyeh says “our Palestinian people and the Palestinian resistance groups will not sit idly by” in the face of Israel’s “savage aggression” against Al-Aqsa.

Haniyeh calls on “all Palestinian organizations to unify their ranks and intensify their resistance against the Zionist occupation.”
