Hamas plans to break the illegal Israeli imposed siege on Gaza "once and for all", a senior member of the movement said yesterday.
Hamas will "pay whatever price is needed" to break the blockade, he added, saying:
We have the right to regain what was occupied by [Israel] in spite of all the conspiracies being plotted against us.
"Our people will never surrender and will never raise the white flag before the liberation of every inch from the historic land of Palestine."
Badran, who lives in exile, arrived in the Gaza Strip on Thursday as part of an international Hamas delegation to discuss internal Palestinian reconciliation and a potential truce between Israel and resistance factions.
