Meshaal: Hamas ready for all possibilities and will break the siege

The head of Hamas's political bureau, Khaled Meshaal, confirmed that the Palestinian resistance in the Gaza Strip is ready for all possibilities, stressing at the same time the need to deter Israel's aggression and lift the siege of Gaza, Assabeel newspaper reported.

Speaking on the telephone on Thursday with the president of the Iranian Shura Council, Ali Larijani, Meshaal also reportedly expressed the hope that the Muslim world would unite in support of the Palestinian cause.

Meshaal said that his movement has not forgotten the Islamic Republic's support for Palestine, and he expressed his hope that Iran would continue its support and advocacy for the Palestinian people and their just cause.

For his part, the head of the Iranian Shura Council said that Tehran is hurting to see the Palestinian bloodshed, but that the Israeli occupation had miscalculated the consequences when deciding to carry out this aggression on the Gaza Strip.

Larijani pointed out that Iran is proud of the Palestinian resistance and the Palestinian people's sacrifice, and is confident that the resistance will prevail.

On Thursday night, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon expanded the military operation in the Gaza Strip to include a limited ground incursion, ostensibly to destroy the tunnels between Gaza and Israel.
