Haniyeh: Raed Salah’s Arrest in the U.K. Harms The Entire Palestinian People


At a Gaza Legislative Council solidarity rally for the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel, Sheikh Raed Salah, who is detained in the U.K., Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said that Salah is a symbol of the Palestinian presence in occupied Palestine since 1948.

Haniyeh added that Salah expresses Palestinian desires and aspirations, especially regarding Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa mosque, and therefore harming him harms the entire Palestinian people and free men everywhere.

Haniyeh condemned British support of the occupation, and called on human rights organizations to work to free Salah, saying that he is “a messenger of freedom, respect, and human rights.”

Haniyeh added that Salah intends to join the Gaza flotilla from the U.K. in order to break the blockade of Gaza.
