Haniyeh: This is a Turning Point

Hamas’s Gaza Prime Minister, Ismail Haniyeh, said on Thursday night that "what is happening today is a turning point in the struggle with Israel."

In a speech he gave, Haniyeh attacked the United States and said that it is biased in favor of "tyrannical and oppressive" Israel. He also thanked Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi for the solidarity he displayed towards the people of Gaza, and called on him to fully open the Rafiah crossing for the transfer of goods and civilians.
