Hazem Qassem, Hamas’s spokesman, said that the Israeli bombing of Quneitra in the Syrian Golan Heights is “barbaric aggression” and an Israeli rampage affecting the entire region.
Qassem stated in a press statement on Wednesday morning that this repeated aggression against Syria reflects the occupation’s persistent crimes against the Palestinian people and all the peoples of the Arab region.
He pointed out that this aggression comes a few days after the US Secretary of State’s visit to the occupied Golan Heights, stressing that this represents actual American participation in the aggression.
The escalation of the Israeli aggression comes at a time when some countries in the region hasten to normalize with the occupation, which encourages Israel to continue and escalate its aggression, Qassem added.
He stressed that the continuation of the Israeli aggression against the nation requires uniting efforts and stances to confront the “Zionist project”.
The official Syrian News Agency, SANA, reported that the Israeli occupation army launched aerial attacks on Tuesday night, on Jabal Al-Manea, south of Quneitra, in the Golan Heights.
