Abbas Has No Right to Relinquish Any Part of Palestine

Hamas: Abbas Does Not Have the Right to Relinquish Any Part of Palestine

GAZA, (PIC)-- Hamas movement renewed its rejection of the futile negotiations, saying they only serve the interests of the occupation.

The movement stressed, at a press conference on Monday evening, that Abu Mazen and his negotiating team do not have the legitimacy and the right to give up any part of the land of Palestine or any of the people's rights.

It stressed that the Palestinian people with all its factions including the PLO factions have rejected the resumption of negotiations, and called on all the Palestinian living forces and factions to unite against the move which aims to liquidate the Palestinian cause.

It also called on the Arab League and the Arab and Islamic countries to "lift the cover on this negotiating process," amid the Palestinian Authority's serious and continued concessions.

Hamas stressed on its rejection of the futile negotiations and renewed its commitment to the Palestinian constants, pointing out that "the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their land and their homes from which they have been forcibly expelled is a collective and an individual right for every Palestinian and no one has the right to relinquish it

The movement also emphasized on the choice of resistance until the liberation of Palestine, the return of all refugees, the release of all captives and the liberation of Jerusalem.
