Haniyeh: Leaders not more sacred than children

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said Friday that the Islamic movement's leaders “are not afraid of Israeli threats.”

Haniyeh said that “the leaders’ blood is not any more treasured than the children’s and families’ blood.”

In a statement, he highlighted that Israel was the one who rejected a ceasefire long ago and “the one who began a war after the wild attack on Palestinians in the West Bank and Jerusalem.”

He said that for this reason, Israel should be the first to end hostilities.

“We defend ourselves for we all have the same blood and destiny wherever we are,” Haniyeh added.

“Stop your crimes against our people; your attacks will fail, you will not reach your goals and our people will win no matter how big the sacrifices are and despite the threats,” Haniyeh warned.

“Our people are living through a never-experienced period of unity and resistance.”
