Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said Saturday, "The willpower and determination of our people during the "March of Return" protests have defeated the crimes of the occupation.
"The Shahids' (martyrs) blood brings us closer to achieve victory over the Zionist enemy. Our marches are not meant to gain money or fuel. We have the right to break the siege (imposed on Gaza) and live with dignity," Haniyeh asserted.
"The marches will not cease until the siege over Gaza is completely lifted," he went on to say.
