Hamas: Creating a Zionist entity was a major crime against Palestine
The Movement of Hamas stated Saturday that the establishment of a Zionist entity in Palestine was a major crime against the Palestinian people and the Arab and Muslim nations that lost a precious part of their land.
In a press release on the 62nd anniversary of the Nakba (catastrophe), Hamas said that the national struggle and the many sacrifices that have been made since 1948 protected the Palestinian people’s identity and their right to defend their land against the occupation.
“The painful memories which our people have witnessed on the days of the Nakba are not confined to those unpleasant times, but they have expanded farther into other stations where tens of thousands of our people were slain by the Zionist war machinery,” Hamas highlighted.
The Movement also emphasized on this anniversary that the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their cities and villages they were uprooted from is inalienable and does not end by prescription, adding that this right belongs to the entire Palestinian people and neither a group of individuals nor agreements can waive it.
