CAIRO, (PIC)– Hamas movement renewed on Sunday its rejection of the two-state solution, affirming its refusal to recognize the “Zionist entity”.
Hamas said in a press release that its acceptance of establishing a Palestinian state on 1967 land did not mean forsaking historical Palestine or recognizing legitimacy of the occupation on the remaining land of Palestine.
The movement expressed dismay at statements of PA chief Mahmoud Abbas claiming that the Palestinian factions had accepted the two-state solution and popular resistance.
It explained that accepting a Palestinian land on 1967 land was meant as part of achieving national consensus on a joint program.
Hamas said that it backed all kinds of resistance against occupation including popular and armed resistance, which proved its effectiveness in defeating occupation, regaining rights, and establishing the independent Palestinian state on national soil with Jerusalem as its capital.
