In a statement marking the anniversary of the Arab defeat in the 1967 Six Day War, Hamas on Wednesday reiterated its commitment to the continuation of Jihad to liberate all of “Palestine” and praised the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

The terrorist group said it strongly opposed any move that would promote normalization with Israel, adding, "We welcome the positions of countries, organizations and bodies that support the rights of the Palestinian people and the resistance against normalization, as well as the international boycott movement against the occupation (BDS) and other movements, and we also praise all liberals/free people in the world who support the [Palestinian] cause."

"Oh free people/liberals - we defeated the army that was not defeated ... and victory is very close," the Hamas statement said, stressing that there would never be a relinquishment of Jerusalem, the capital of “Palestine”.

Hamas also said that "the resistance in all its forms will continue," while stressing that "the Palestinian people have the right to develop the means of resistance."
