Hamas calls for new Palestinian strategy following Trump’s Jerusalem move

Hamas leader Ismail Hanaiyeh

Gaza : The Islamic Hamas movement called on Tuesday for Palestinian national conference to discuss a new Palestinian strategy.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh stressed in a televised speech the need for a new strategy that addresses the US and Israeli declaration aimed at striking the Palestinian issue, reports Xinhua.

“We are ready to go to any capital to participate in such conference, especially in the Egyptian capital Cairo as the sponsor of the Palestinian reconciliation,” Haniyeh was quoted as saying.

He said that the US Vice President Mike Pence’s tour in Israel was “unwelcome,” adding that his speech before the Knesset a day earlier “proves the US has a strategic alliance with the Zionist entity.”

The US “doesn’t take the interests and requirements of the Islamic and Arab nation into consideration,” Haniyeh added.

He accused the US administration of targeting “the principles of the Palestinian cause” by recognising Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
