Al-Nakhalah: Normalization Will Be Met with More Israeli Attacks
Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement visits Egypt, meets the head of the Egyptian General Intelligence Service, and discusses several topics related to the Palestinian cause and the Israeli aggression.
The Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement Ziad al-Nakhala left Egypt after ending his official visit to Cairo, which started last Wednesday, during which he held several meetings with Egyptian officials, including the head of the Egyptian General Intelligence Service Minister Abbas Kamel.
In a statement, the Movement mentioned that the meetings tackled several topics related to the Palestinian cause, the challenges it faces, and the struggle with the occupation.
During his visit, al-Nakhala discussed with Egyptian officials the Israeli occupation's aggression and settlement, especially in the occupied al-Quds, Sheikh Jarrah, and al-Aqsa Mosque, as well as the ongoing siege on the Gaza Strip.
Al-Nakhala strongly criticized some Arab countries' insistence on normalizing with the occupation and pointed out that normalization will only be met with more attacks by the occupation on sacred Arab and Islamic sites.
He emphasized the need for Arabs to support the Palestinian cause instead of normalizing ties with the Israeli occupation.
According to the Islamic Jihad's statement, al-Nakhala's meetings focused on the need to remove all obstacles that prevent the completion of the reconciliation process between Palestinian factions.
The Movement also stressed the necessity of reaching a national strategy to confront the occupation and its aggression, especially with the rise of Zionist extremism, which represents a daily threat to the Palestinian land and holy sites.
For his part, the head of the Egyptian General Intelligence Service, Minister Abbas Kamel, affirmed Egypt's keenness to end the suffering of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and explained that the Egyptian units are working as per the directions of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to implement reconstruction plans.
