Head of Hamas Abroad Khaled Meshaal congratulated Palestinian refugee students honoured in a ceremony in northern Syria on Friday, Quds Press reported.

Meshaal delivered a speech via telephone at the event organised to honour the top students of the preparatory and secondary schools in Northern Syria.

Meshaal expressed:

This generation will promote the Palestinian issue and make the future for Palestine and for the country where they live.

He encouraged the students to continue their progress in all fields, expressing his "pride" in their creativity, stressing that education is the incentive for success and progress.

Mohammad Al-Saadi, director of the Palestine Commission for Relief and Development, the organisation that put on the event, said: "Meshaal's message was not merely a speech at an event, but it is a proof that the Palestinian resistance respects education and Palestinian refugees."
