Badran: The US is not serious in pushing for a ceasefire

Friday 19-April-2024


Member of the Hamas Political Bureau, Hossam Badran, said that the US is biased to Israel and not serious in pressuring Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu to stop his aggression against Gaza.

The negotiation rounds showed contradiction in Joe Biden administration’s positions between its statements and actions, especially with the approaching US elections, Badran said in press statements on Thursday evening.

“Our demands are natural and humanitarian. The Netanyahu government, however, seeks to achieve political gains from prolonging the war,” he added, stressing that “no concession to a comprehensive ceasefire and the withdrawal from all occupied territories in Gaza.”

“We insist on resistance to defend our Palestinian people and will continue confronting the Israeli occupation forces. We will never surrender,” Badran said.

He stressed, “We will not allow the Israeli occupation entity to impose its conditions on us after the huge sacrifices we have made,” adding that “our people are showing legendary steadfastness.”

Badran asserted that the Netanyahu government does not seek a solution and negotiation, and the international community bears responsibility for the Israeli threats.

“We are in a state of self-defense, and we will resist with all our power and capabilities,” he affirmed, pointing out that “the humanitarian situation in Gaza is catastrophic.”

Badran said that “the international position has recently changed and become convinced that defeating the resistance and Hamas is a mission hard to achieve.”
