GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The military wing of the Popular Resistance Committees said Saturday that they reject any ceasefire that does not include breaking the siege on Gaza and "bringing back life to the West Bank and Jerusalem."
The al-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades said that “the Palestinian resistance will not accept a ceasefire that is imposed by Israel, with Israel’s conditions.”
During a news conference in Gaza City, a spokesman highlighted that no ceasefire would be discussed if it does not include providing “a good life” to Palestinians and that does not acknowledge their legitimate rights.
He warned Israel against “assassinating” leaders of the resistance and threatened that they will “open the gates of war (in a way) they never expected, in all its forms and strikes.”
The brigades called for “unity and joint operations” to face any coming attack, and called upon Arab and Islamic countries to urgently act to protect Jerusalem and its people and to break the siege on Gaza.
They also called on the Palestinian security services in the West Bank to end “security coordination” with Israel and to support the Palestinians and protect them from Israel.
