Hamas is committed to holy war against Israel, its leader Khaled Mashaal affirmed on Wednesday.
“Our path is resistance and the rifle, and our choice is jihad,” he said, calling for the “liberation of our lands and holy sites and the return of the Palestinian refugees to their homes.”
An Israeli official in Jerusalem responded that his remarks “expose the myth that Hamas has somehow changed or moderated its positions.”
