Israeli crimes in Gaza, Quds deserved firm response, Haniyeh tells Iran’s Leader in new letter

In a letter to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, a senior Hamas leader says Israel’s continued acts of aggression against the Palestinian people and their sanctities necessitated a firm response from the resistance movement in Gaza, calling on for joint global efforts to end the regime’s atrocities against the Palestinians in Gaza and the occupied territories.

In his new letter to the Leader on Tuesday, Ismail Haniyeh, head of the Hamas Political Bureau, outlined the brutal crimes of the Zionist occupiers against the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem al-Quds, al-Aqsa Mosque, the Gaza Strip and the territories occupied since 1948.

Given the intensification of the occupying Israeli regime’s acts of aggression against the Palestinian people, we held extensive contacts with various parties, asking them to stop the enemy from advancing its crimes and sinister goals and warning that the Palestinian people and resistance would not let these crimes go unanswered, Haniyeh said.

He added that the insistence of the Zionist regime’s criminal leaders on continuing their acts of aggression against the Palestinian nation, land, and sanctities required a decisive and legitimate response through resistance in the Gaza Strip.
