(July 5, 2020 / MEMRI) It is time to “turn the page” and clash with Israel, former Hamas Political Bureau chairman Khaled Mashal said in a video that was uploaded last week to YouTube.
In an interview uploaded to YouTube on July 1, Mashal that today’s Palestinian leaders must re-examine the plan for a peace settlement with Israel and advocated the creation of a detailed “resistance” plan that would involve every Palestinian living in the West Bank, Gaza, Israel and abroad.
In light of Israel’s annexation plans, he said, the West Bank must rise up using direct confrontation, with every weapon available, including vehicles, stabbings and other, “innovative” measures.
He added that the West Bank stands on the shoulders of a “great historical heritage,” and that it is the West Bank of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam (the armed wing of Hamas).
