Muhammad Haj Mousa also slammed the US’ views on how the Gaza Strip should be ruled after the Israeli regime’s genocidal war on the coastal enclave.

He further rejected attempts by the Israeli regime’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to make it seem that the Palestinian resistance groups are impeding a negotiations on a ceasefire agreement in Gaza.

He warned against a planned Israeli attack on the southern Gaza city of Rafah in continuation of the Zionists’ crimes against Palestinians.
