Jihad Movement officially announces reaching cease-fire agreement with Zionist enemy

GAZA, May 14 (YPA) – The head of the political department of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine, Dr. Muhammad al-Hindi, has stated that a cease-fire agreement has been reached with the Zionist enemy entity.

The “Palestine Online” website quoted al-Hindi in televised statements Saturday as saying: “The ceasefire agreement includes stopping targeting civilians and individuals and not demolishing homes.”

Al-Hindi confirmed that the Islamic Jihad Movement would abide by the cease-fire agreement as long as the Zionist enemy adheres to it.

Regarding the guarantees of the agreement, al-Hindi said: “Guarantees are our strength, and we have preserved our strength, internal unity, and rallying around the resistance, which is the only guarantee against (Israel), which previously turned its back on us.”

He added, “The Zionist entity started the round of escalation by targeting civilian buildings, and our response was in self-defense.”

Al-Hindi also confirmed that the joint room of the resistance was a support and an incubator in the recent confrontation.

Since the dawn of last Tuesday, the Zionist enemy has launched a massive aggression against the Gaza Strip by assassinating three of the most prominent leaders of the Al-Quds Brigades by bombing their homes in the cities of Gaza and Rafah. The aggression until this evening resulted in the deaths of 35 citizens and the wounding of hundreds.

The Palestinian resistance, through the Joint Operations Room, responded to the Zionist aggression with an operation called “Revenge of the Free”, during which the enemy’s settlements and military barracks in the south and center of the entity were rained with rockets and mortars.
