Head of Hamas’s foreign relations office Mousa Abu Marzouk has affirmed that the armed resistance is at the forefront of options to confront and thwart the Israeli annexation plans.

“The Israeli annexation plans are a new crime and persistence in stealing the Palestinian land resources,” Abu Marzouk said in press remarks to assabeel.net, stressing that Hamas “will work on frustrating them with all available tools and means.”

“The Palestinian state that we want and the Palestinian people want — and such endeavor is backed by our Arab and Islamic nations and the world’s free people — is a country from the river to the sea, so the future of the Palestinian state lies in its complete liberation,” the Hamas official said.

He underscored that the Palestinian people have options at the popular, diplomatic and legal levels, including the armed resistance, to respond to such Israeli step and force it to backtrack on its new acts of theft.

In a similar context, al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, had described the Israeli decision to annex the Jordan Valley and parts of the West Bank as “a declaration of war against the Palestinian people.”

In a video message, Abu Obeida, spokesman for al-Qassam Brigades, vowed that the armed wing of Hamas would remain a "loyal guard defending the Palestinian people, their lands and holy sites."

“We will make the enemy bite its fingers in regret for such criminal decision,” he said.
