(Worthy News) - Hamas said on Monday that it will not lay down its weapons or "pay any political price" as part of any cease-fire agreement with Israel.
"We benefit from the truce," senior Hamas official Mahmoud Zahar was quoted as telling the online newspaper Al-Khaleej Online. "Our weapons will remain in our hands and there are no conditions regarding Hamas's right to [continue] the resistance. The truce does not require a political price [from Hamas] and it is not part of the deal of the century."
The "deal of the century" refers to US President Donald Trump's yet-to-be-announced plan for peace in the Middle East. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
