The Islamic Jihad movement celebrated on Thursday the 25th anniversary of the movement's founding where thousands of Islamic Jihad supporters and Palestinian factions' leaders gathered in al-Kateba square in Gaza City to join the movement's celebration.
The participants raised flags of the Islamic Jihad movement while the Quds Brigades, the military wing of the movement, put on a military show, reported on the Palestinian Information Center.
The Secretary General of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine Ramadan Shallah confirmed during his speech that the Palestinian issue is passing through a very sensitive period.
He stressed his refusal to renounce resistance or to escape to the so-called peaceful popular resistance, noting that his movement does not accept an open truce for free because it poses a threat to resistance.
We will continue our way until liberation, whatever the cost, Khalil al-Hayya, a member of Hamas political bureau, sated, adding that no truce with the occupation until the liberation of the Palestinian land.
Time has come for the Palestinian forces to launch the biggest leadership workshop to agree on a national project under the banner of all Palestine to Palestinians, and it was time to liberate the land and holy places, he added during the festival, as a representative of the National and Islamic Forces.
