Senior Islamic Jihad leader Khader Habib yesterday described the situation in the Gaza Strip as “tough” and said it is causing worries and concerns, Qudsnet said.

Speaking exclusively to Qudsnet, Habib said: “Gaza lives in a real crisis from the economic and political sides. No one is happy about this situation. The incompletion of the reconciliation deal and the continuous Israeli siege make the situation more complicated.”

Regarding the latest series of explosions in Gaza, Habib said: “The security situation in the Strip is not reassuring. In addition to the siege, there are certain people pushing ahead for a confrontation with the Israeli occupation.”

He suggested the “real” implementation of internal Palestinian reconciliation and the unity government has to carry out its missions in Gaza.

Habib said that the Palestinian citizens in the Gaza Strip are unable to bear more internal conflicts; therefore, he called for Hamas and Fatah to end their political rivalries.
