GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine organized a rally in Gaza City on Tuesday to support national unity.
Senior PFLP leader Kayid al-Ghoul spoke during the rally and said the "people's steadfastness" in Gaza should lead to Palestinian national unity based on partnership and a political program which guarantees Palestinian rights.
Militants affiliated to the PFLP participated in the rally, which began at Omar al-Mukhtar Street before moving to the al-Basha multi-story residential tower, which was destroyed during Israel's offensive on Gaza.
Participants waved Palestinian and PFLP flags during the march, and some members of the crowd held up photos of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah.
Al-Ghoul said Palestinian militants should reject any demands to be disarmed.
DFLP leader Hani Thawabta said the rally was a message to the Palestinian people in Gaza to thank them for their "legendary steadfastness."
An April 23 agreement between Hamas and Fatah paved the way for the formation of a government of national unity for the first time in seven years, but Israel has strongly opposed the deal and severely targeted Hamas in the months that followed.
