Expanding the temporary truce to include the West Bank would be a difficult task at this moment. That’s according to Dr Bassem Naim who is leading a Hamas delegation in South Africa. He is also Gaza’s former health minister.
It comes as the Israeli occupation regime has unleashed an intensified assault on towns in the West Bank during the temporary truce in Gaza. It has particularly targeted Jenin, Tulkarem and Nablus, which are regarded as bastions of resistance.
A delegation of Hamas officials is in South Africa, calling on the media and activists to only provide the truth of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Hamas’ representative in Iran, Dr Khaled Qaddoumi, addressed the media in Salt River last night. He reiterated that a two-state solution is no longer an option for Palestinians.
