Seif Al-Quds, a decisive battle in history of conflict: Hamas official
A member of the Hamas political bureau, Zaher Jabarin, asserts that Hamas has a unified strategic decision, stressing the existence of a consensus in the movement on the relationship with Iran.
A member of the Hamas political bureau, Zaher Jabarin, told Al Mayadeen that the battle of Saif Al-Quds was the decisive battle in the history of the conflict that has been going on for seven decades," noting that the appearance of Hamas leader Yahya Al-Sinwar in the Gaza Strip after the battle "painted the clear picture of a strategic victory."
Jabarin stressed that "Hamas has a unified and firm strategic decision, and a consensus on the relationship with Iran," adding that the operations aiming to capture Israeli soldiers have a strategic value, stressing that there is a "day and night" effort to accomplish an exchange deal for Palestinian prisoner.
Concerning Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons, Jabarin said that Hamas sent messages that it will not allow the battle of female prisoners to remain within the "Zionist walls."
He pointed out that "the occupation eludes the exchange deal," adding that it is trying to use time in its favor, asserting that this tactic will fail in breaking Hamas's 'will and resistance.'" He said that just like the "Wafaa Al-Ahrar" deal [referring to the previous deal] was completed, a new deal will be achieved.
About the Palestinian elections, Jabarin explained that his movement "is ready for elections," and if Fatah wins, Hamas will recognize and accept the results and refrain from doing what Fatah did when Hamas won, referring to the legislative elections that took place in 2006.
Jabarin concluded, "We have a road map, and we are ready to return to any conciliatory path on national bases," if it is free from "American or Israeli condition."
