BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The leader of the Hamas Movement, Isma’el Haniyeh, told Sputnik News Agency on Monday that his group will continue their protests along the Gazan border.
“Some goals have been achieved thanks to these protests, and they will continue until we reach all our goals,” leader of the political bureau of Hamas Ismail Haniyeh said, adding that the residents of Gaza drew attention to the Palestinian issues over the protests.
Haniyeh added that the protests also helped the Palestinians to “confirm their right for the return to the abandoned territories.”
The situation on the Israeli-Gaza border has significantly worsened over the past several months.
Since March 30, the Palestinians have been holding mass rallies, known as the Great March of Return, near the border, which have already claimed the lives of 135 Palestinians as Israel responded with riot dispersal means, according to media reports.
