GAZA, (PIC)– Dr. Salah Bardawil, a Hamas leader, said on Monday that there were no real efforts on the ground to achieve national reconciliation.
He told Quds Press that the purported discussions on reconciliation were merely theoretical and a reflection of the Palestinian people’s aspiration for unity.
Bardawil attributed this situation to the PA’s wagering on negotiations with the Israeli occupation authority.
Reconciliation does not go in harmony with negotiations with the IOA especially at the current stage when Israel was trying to extract whatever concessions it could achieve from the Palestinian people, the Hamas leader said.
Shifting to another issue, Bardawil said that frequenting the Aqsa mosque is a kind of Jihad and resistance.
The Hamas leader renewed his movement’s belief that resistance is the means toward restoring rights, adding that the Palestinian people were struggling and would continue to fight in order to attain their rights.
