Hamas rules out new negotiations in response to Israeli crimes

Beirut, May 28 (Prensa Latina) The leader of the Palestinian Hamas movement, Bassem Naim, today ruled out accepting new negotiations with Israel while Tel Aviv occupies the Rafah crossing and imposes its control there.

Speaking to the pan-Arab channel Al Mayadeen, Naim emphasized that the Resistance will not agree to use the talks as a means to give the Israeli enemy more time to continue with its plans against the Palestinian people.

Incidentally, he stressed that the responsibility of the Resistance is to protect the people from massacres, and denied any contact or presentation of a new document for a ceasefire.

According to Naim, Palestinian organizations will not open the way to discuss any other offer according to the tactics that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu adopted over months.

At this point, he pointed out that the Resistance previously accepted a document presented by the mediators that met the minimum requirements of the Palestinians.

Naim’s statements occurred after attempts by Tel Aviv to promote a return to talks, which the Hamas movement denied, considering such a purpose an enemy maneuver to cover up its criminal acts.

Previously, the leader of Hamas in Lebanon, Osama Hamdan, stated that the Israeli prisoners held by the Resistance will not be released except under Palestinian conditions and the document presented to the mediators.

Along the same lines, the head of the national relations department of the Hamas movement abroad, Ali Baraka, clarified that any new offer must include the Resistance’s demands for a ceasefire, the return of the displaced and the withdrawal of Israeli forces.
