Thousands of Palestinian Muslims gathered in Gaza City's eastern Shejaiya neighbourhood, close to the Israel-Gaza perimeter fence, on Wednesday to pray and celebrate Eid al-Fitr, also known as the «Festival of Breaking the Fast.»
Deputy Hamas Leader Khalil al-Hayya spoke at the mass and attacked what he called «the American-Zionist conspiracy» that he said wanted to undermine Palestinians and... Еще «try to create new enemies among the nation's people to divert attention and money to confront the real enemy.»
«We will strike the heart of Israel until the end of the Israeli occupation. There is no place for Israel on our occupied land, even if we present hundreds and millions of martyrs, wounded and prisoners», Khalil al-Hayya added.
Eid al-Fitr is a Muslim religious holiday that marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.
