Hamas welcomes UNSC resolution demanding Gaza ceasefire

Palestinian resistance movement Hamas on Monday issued a statement welcoming the UN Security Council’s resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Here is the full statement:

The Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas welcomes today’s call by the UN Security Council for an immediate ceasefire.

We emphasize the necessity of reaching a permanent ceasefire that leads to the withdrawal of all zionist forces from the Gaza Strip and the return of displaced persons to their homes from which they were forced out.

We also affirm our readiness to immediately engage in a prisoner exchange process that leads to the release of prisoners held by both sides. In the context of the resolution’s text, we stress the importance of freedom of movement for Palestinian citizens and the entry of all humanitarian needs for all residents, in all areas of the Gaza Strip, including heavy equipment to remove rubble, so we can bury our martyrs who have been under the rubble for months.

Hamas calls on the Security Council to pressure the occupation to comply with the ceasefire and to stop the genocide war and ethnic cleansing against our people.

Hamas reaffirms the right of our Palestinian people to establish their independent, sovereign Palestinian state with Al-Quds as its capital, and the right to return, self-determination, in accordance with international resolutions and international law.

Hamas appreciates the efforts of our brothers in Algeria and all countries in the Security Council that have supported and continue to support our people, and work to stop the aggression and the zionist genocide war.
