Palestinian scholars: Hamas sees Palestinian interests in Syria ties
A group of Palestinian scholars issues a statement regarding Hamas' decision to restore their relationship with Syria in light of the Israeli aggression on Al-Aqsa Mosque.
A group of Palestinian scholars issued a statement regarding Hamas' decision to restore its relationship with Syria in light of the Israeli aggression on Al-Aqsa Mosque.
The statement, signed by 30 prominent Palestinian scholars, read that Hamas' decision "is subject to the principles of legitimate policy that is based on striking a balance between conflicting interests and disadvantages."
Furthermore, the statement stressed that "Hamas is doing what it deems appropriate for the interest of the Palestinian people and their resistance," calling on the entire nation to support and defend Al-Aqsa Mosque to the best of its abilities.
A few days ago, on September 15, Hamas expressed that "Syria has embraced our Palestinian people and its resistance factions for decades, which requires us to stand in solidarity with it in light of the brutal aggression it is facing," noting that Palestine "will continue to build and develop solid relations with Syria."
Hamas had also cemented that it stands with Syria in its confrontation against the aggression and strongly condemned "the repeated Zionist aggression against Syria, especially the bombing of the Damascus and Aleppo airports, and we affirm our support for confronting it."
Earlier, on May 16, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad said during a meeting with members of the Secretariat-General of the Union of Palestinian Communities and Organization in Europe, which held its fifth yearly congress in Damascus, that any success for the Palestinian cause is a success for Syria.
