Hamas leader: No to Israel's disarmament demand
A senior leader of Hamas on Friday rejected Israel's demand that the group be disarmed as a condition for ending the long-running blockade of the Gaza Strip and permitting the opening of an air and seaport there.

 

Ismail Haniyeh told a gathering near Gaza City that "we cannot accept or deal with any international decision to disarm the resistance" – a reference to Hamas and other Palestinian militant groups.
