Further attacks by Zionist regime may kill more captives

TEHRAN, May 28 (MNA) – Hamas has warned the Israeli regime that the longer the latter sustains its genocidal war against the Gaza Strip, the more likely it is for the regime’s captives to die as a result of the aggression.

"The longer [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and his supporters delay committing to this (cessation of the aggression)…, the more of their prisoners will lose their lives at the hands of their army with Zionist bombing and American missiles,” Osama Hamdan, the Palestinian Resistance movement’s representative in Lebanon, told a news conference in Beirut on Monday.

The continued procrastination and airstrikes mean that their prisoners may not return but as corpses, and perhaps they will never return, he added.

Hamdan reasserted that "the Zionist occupation will not get back their prisoners held by the Resistance except according to its conditions, which were presented to the mediators in Egypt and Qatar through a real and serious deal."

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Hamas representative blasted the regime for killing at least 50 Palestinians during earlier airstrikes against a designated safe zone for displaced people in the southern Gaza city of Rafah.

The Hamas’ official said, "The occupation’s claim of the presence of armed men at the site of the massacre during its (the airstrikes’) implementation is shameless and false.”

The claim “is refuted by pictures of the bodies of the martyred civilians, including children and women. In addition, the area is located west of Rafah and is far from the area of the occupation’s operations and its focus in Rafah and its clash with the Resistance,” he concluded.

Israel waged its brutal war on besieged Gaza on October 7 after Hamas carried out an unprecedented operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

Israel has imposed a complete siege on the densely populated territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
