Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh is calling on leaders of Arab and Islamic countries to act urgently to thwart Israel’s plan to apply sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria.

The Hamas leader wrote a letter to more than 40 states in which he urged them to convene an Arab and Islamic summit to express united support for the Palestinian position and opposition to the entire “settlement plan”, annexation and Judaization of Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, and to provide a political and economic protection net for the Palestinian people in their fight to realize their rights.

He accused Israel of trying to promote normalization with Arab and Islamic countries in order to help realize the "occupation of Palestine."

In this context, Haniyeh demanded that normalization with the "Israeli enemy" be ruled out, calling it "a big mistake that will not be forgiven and a knife of treason in the back of the Palestinian people."

Haniyeh stressed that the Palestinian people would not sit back in the face of the aggression and escalation and would deal with Israeli "terror" with an all-out resistance until the objectives of the removal of the “occupation”, the liberation and the return are fulfilled.
