PESHAWAR: Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh has hoped that Prime Minister Imran Khan will take pragmatic steps to support the Palestinian cause and fully back their struggle.
In a recorded speech to “Labbaik Al-Quds Million March” in Peshawar on Sunday, he said that Muslim countries should form strategic partnership for defending holy lands. Jamaat-i-Islami organised the rally to express solidarity with the people of Gaza and other occupied territories of Palestine who recently resisted Israeli aggression.
JI chief Sirajul Haq, provincial chief Senator Mushtaq Ahmad Khan and other senior leaders of the party also addressed the rally. A large number of supporters of JI attended the rally, which was held on the main Grand Trunk Road. The venue was decorated with the national flags of Palestine Authority.
A banner read: “Israel is an Apartheid State.” The charged participants of the rally chanted slogans of “death to Israel” and “we are ready to sacrifice our lives to liberate Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
