Hamas: The Town of Beita is An Icon of Popular Resistance
Hamas spokesman says that a heroic epic has been waged in the town of Beita, south of Nablus, for 100 days.
In a statement stressing the importance of the town of Beita’s ongoing struggle against Israeli settlers, Hamas spokesman Abd al-Latif al-Qanou said the following:
“The ongoing struggle experience in the town of Beita, south of Nablus, has turned into an icon of popular resistance. This heroic saga, which the town of Beita has been waging for 100 days, has thwarted all attempts by the occupation and settlers to seize control of Jabal Sbeih. The ongoing confrontations reflect the insistence of the people of Beita to fight their battle with all available forms and methods to thwart the occupation's settlement plans, and demonstrate the ability of our Palestinian people to legendary resilience in the face of the arrogance of the occupation."
The statement comes amidst a new wave of Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people of Beita, of which we list:
