In a special brief interview with Islam Times correspondent in Gaza, Friday evening, Meshaal said during his visit to the house of martyr Ahmed Yassin: “The Palestinian reconciliation is a title given to Hamas Movement in order to end the prolonged internal division, and we hope, if it is God’s will, to achieve this soon”.
Meshaal, along with the delegation of the Movement’s political bureau, had visited the house of Hamas’ founder martyr Sheikh Ahmed Yassin. They were welcomed by crowds of citizens who came to receive the visiting delegation, repeating welcoming slogans.
Meshaal stressed that his movement would continue to follow the steps of Sheikh Yassin saying, “We would be following the steps of Sheikh Yassine and we would continue and move forward on the same path, and if it is God’s will the process of jihad has began and we are his brethrens who would move ahead with the same pace. We hope that this process, as well as the forces of the Palestinian resistance with all their titles and colors and all the victories of our people, would be culminated in the divine victory by God”.
He added: “This is a great day, and this is a great moment; glory initiated from this house and from this modest house the giant of resistance and jihad has been launched. From this house, next to the martyrdom chair of Sheikh Ahmad Yassine, the founding leader - May Allah’s wide mercy be upon him - we are experiencing this scent, these blessings, and this pure spirit”.
Mashaal also visited the house of the commander of Hamas’ military wing martyr Izz el-Deen al-Qassam Brigades, martyr Ahmed al-Jabari, asserting that “Abu Muhammad Al-Jabari was one of the dearest people to my heart”.
Meshaal in a statement from inside the house of martyr al-Jabari said: “The eight days battle and the achievement and victory attained by the people and the resistance are attributed to Abu Mohammed al-Jabari, for he was not a dear leader only, but he was sincere, and his sincerity has rubbed Netanyahu’s nose on ground for eight days”.
He pointed out that Ahmed al-Jabari was in the past in the service of resistance and today is in the service of his family and the Palestinian people, stressing that “We will be unified in politics on the grounds of the national constants, and Gaza, the West Bank, and the territories of 48 would remain a thorn in the jaws of the enemy of the nation”.
Meshaal also met the members of Al-Dalo family, which has lost 12 martyrs in the latest Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, during his visit to the place of bombing, saying that “Israel’s achievements lie in bombing the families and children”.
He called to work with wisdom and strength and to be united in front of the Israeli occupation, and said that the Palestinian resistance should be unified during confrontation.
Meshaal is scheduled to deliver a speech when commemorating Hamas Movement’s anniversary tomorrow, which would include the movement’s position on the national reconciliation with Fatah.
