Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar vowed on Saturday to remove all the Jews from “Palestine”.

Al-Zahar’s comments, quoted by Hamas’s Palestine newspaper, came at a ceremony in memory of a Hamas terrorist who was killed in one of the recent collapses of Hamas’s terror tunnels.

He said that the struggle to liberate “Palestine” would not be stopped by borders and barbed wire fences.

Al-Zahar praised "the young people who are standing in front of tanks holding a rock and a knife” before declaring, "We will remove the Jews from our land; this is a divine promise that will take place."

At the same ceremony, a representative of Hamas’s so-called “military wing”, the Al-Qassam Brigades, said that the "struggle is the only way and the most appropriate way to liberate Palestine and dispose of its occupier.”
