Hamas warns Israel another war is inevitable unless it ends occupation of Palestine

Hamas has warned Israel that another war is inevitable unless its occupation of Palestine ends and the dire humanitarian crisis in Gaza is resolved.

Speaking exclusively to Sky News, in the first interview since mediation talks in Egypt ended, a senior Hamas official said that the fight will continue "with all means" until an independent Palestinian state is established.

"We can defeat Israel, we can target Israel, we have targeted Israel many times," Dr. Ghazi Hamad said.


"Israel has stolen my land. We are the victims. You have to understand, we are the victims of the occupation. We don't trust Israel. We don't believe Israel is interested in peace."


Dr. Hamad said he refused to recognize the state of Israel and didn't rule out another conflict: "Everything is open. Hamas tries to avoid wars, we try to protect our people, we try to give people a good life here, but the occupation all the time is right in front of my eyes."


Both sides are regrouping after the most recent eleven-day conflict in May which killed at least 243 people in Gaza.

More than a hundred of those were women and children.


"Ok we can be killed, they can come and destroy everything, but at the same time Israel will never see the stability unless Palestinians see stability and security," Dr. Hamad told Sky News.


"It is our right, our national right (to strike Israel). Israel should understand that sooner or later we will win because we are the owners of this land."
