RNA - The Palestinian resistance has defended the Palestinian people against the Israeli aggression, he said following a re-enforcing ceasefire between the resistance factions and the Israeli occupation, Middle East News reported.
Once again, the Palestinians have embraced the option of resistance with patience and pride, he added.
“We stress that the resistance will abide by the ceasefire agreement as long as the Israeli occupation adheres to the Egyptian-brokered truce,” Haneyyah stated.
At least seven Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks on the coastal enclave since Monday, in the worst violence between the two sides since the 2014 war.
The latest escalation erupted late on Sunday when Israel launched a botched raid in Gaza that killed seven other Palestinians and one of its commanders.
Hamas and other armed factions on Monday fired over 400 rockets or mortar bombs at Israel, with Israel responding with dozens of air raids.
The Palestinian Shehab news agency reported that civilian buildings, the Al-Aqsa TV channel and the Al-Amal hotel were all targeted by Israeli strikes.
