Durable truce must lead to lifting Gaza blockade: Hamas chief

Islamist Hamas movement chief Khaled Meshaal answers AFP journalists' questions during an interview in the Qatari capital Doha, on August 10, 2014Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal insisted Sunday that his movement’s demands, particularly the lifting of the Gaza blockade, had to be met before a durable truce with Israel could be achieved. In an exclusive interview with AFP, Meshaal said the 72-hour ceasefire Hamas reached with Israel on Sunday “is one of the ways or tactics to ensure successful negotiations or to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza”. The final “goal we insist on is having the demands of Palestinians met and the Gaza Strip exist without a blockade”. In the case of Israeli procrastination or continued aggression, Hamas is ready with other Palestinian factions to resist on the ground and politically and… to face all possibilities,” he said.
