Hamas official Mushir Al-Masri said that the Gaza Strip is "a fortress for the Palestinian resistance and will not be a safe arena for Israel's Mossad spy agency."
During his speech in an event marking the 41st anniversary of Land Day in northern Gaza this morning, he stressed that the resistance possesses something in its quiver that would make the Palestinian people happy. "The unity of the Palestinian people is the key to the liberation of our people," he told the audience.
"We will travel valleys and climb mountains to liberate all our prisoners. Our battle with the occupation is not a religious battle, but an existential battle. The Israeli occupation has no religious or historical right to Palestine," he added.
Al-Masri noted that the Palestinians are the true heirs of the land of the prophets, stressing the need to commit to the right to return to the cities and villages in occupied Palestine.
Palestinians around the world are marking the 41st anniversary of Land Day.
Dozens of Palestinians headed this morning to the Hammouda junction, just a few hundred of metres from the barbed wire separating northern Gaza from the Erez Border Crossing. The Palestinians, with the participation of various factions, renewed their vow to continue efforts to liberate Palestine and regain their occupied land.
