Hamas spokesman Osama Hamdan now turns to the wider international crisis.
“We are warning all parties, if they want to do something to our people… our great Palestinian people will not accept it,” he says.
The US has “dirty plans”, he says, before adding the people of Gaza will not keep silent if Washington continues its “partnership with the occupiers”, referring to Israel.
“We want an independent country with a capital [of] Jerusalem,”
He calls anyone who thinks Hamas will be destroyed “delusional” and says the group will be victorious in its war with Israel.
“We were victorious on 7 October and we will stay victorious,” he says.
“We are staying steadfast and the enemy will sustain losses and we are sending appreciation to our people and our martyrs.”
