Palestinian resistance in Gaza would not launch rockets towards Israeli targets in retaliation for the continuous Israeli aggression on Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque, Quds Press reported political analysts saying yesterday.
According to the news site, the political analyst Fayez Abu Shamala said that launching rockets from Gaza would drag Israel to respond and this would turn the eyes of the world from Jerusalem to the massacres being committed in Gaza.
He stressed that the Israeli occupation authorities would be happy to turn the battle from Jerusalem to Gaza “this will give it the chance to carry out the Judaisation plans away from the sight of the camera.”
The political analyst accused those who call for the Palestinian resistance to be involved in the ongoing battle in Jerusalem of trying to achieve the Israeli goals of “turning the eyes of the world from the Israeli crimes in Jerusalem.”
He noted that there is an “Islamic, Christian, national and political agreement on the importance of the battle in Jerusalem” and this would not be available regarding any battle in Gaza. “This proves that turning the battle from Jerusalem to Gaza is an Israeli goal,” he said.
About the resistance in Gaza, he said: “The rockets of the resistance in Gaza are ready to be launched at Israeli targets... If Israel commits any aggression, the resistance in Gaza is ready to face it.”
He added: “The conflict with Israel has not finished yet, but the leadership of the resistance recognises very well that Jerusalem is the centre of interest and Al-Aqsa Mosque is the Palestinian, Arab, Muslim and international polarisation orbit. Therefore, it does not want to deviate these joint efforts.”
Yesterday, Israeli tanks launched a number of shells at Palestinian targets in the Gaza Strip. No casualties were reported. The Palestinian resistance did not respond to the Israeli aggression.
