Head of the Political Bureau of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), Ismail Haniyeh, said this morning, Sunday, that a delegation from the movement headed by Saleh al-Arouri will head to the Egyptian capital Cairo to discuss a number of important files.
Haniyeh indicated in a press release issued by his office that this visit comes to confirm the well-established fraternal relations with Egypt, and to discuss a number of files of common interest, especially the path of reconciliation and national unity, in addition to discussing the situation in the Gaza Strip at the humanitarian level, and the developments of the situation with The occupation and the political developments that the region is going through in general.
An Egyptian security delegation last visited the Gaza Strip to meet with Hamas officials on the tenth of last month, noting that Cairo is mediating between Hamas and Israel regarding the truce understandings, in addition to its role in sponsoring Palestinian reconciliation.
In another context, Haniyeh renewed his condemnation of normalization between some Arab regimes and Israel, the latest of which was the American announcement of the tripartite US-Israeli-Sudanese agreement.
Haniyeh said, “This policy does not express the Sudanese people and their historical positions on the Palestinian issue,” praising the Sudanese voices rejecting normalization between her country and Israel.
He stressed that the normalization agreements with Israel will not succeed in redrawing the region’s map according to the Israeli mood, as this map is drawn only by peoples who adhere to its principles and our established rights in Palestine.
Haniyeh also expressed his anger and disapproval of the insult to the Prophet Muhammad – may God bless him and grant him peace – in France, with what it includes in insulting Islamic law, spreading the spirit and feelings of hatred, hostility and violence, and undermining the meanings of tolerance and coexistence among nations and peoples of the world.
Haniyeh called on the French President Emmanuel Macron to stop the policy of insulting and inciting Islam, and he also asked him to stop attacking the Prophet Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, and not to prejudice the feelings of Muslims around the world.
And last Wednesday, Macron said in a press statement that France will not abandon the cartoons insulting to Islam and the Prophet Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, which sparked a wave of anger throughout the Islamic world.
