Hamas’s spokesperson in Gaza, Sami Abu Zuhri stated on Tuesday that the remarks made today by the Israeli defense minister, Ehud Barak, signaled ‘failure of the Israeli army actions on Gaza’.
In a statement, faxed to press, Abu Zuhri said that Barak has implicitly acknowledged the fact that there is ‘ an international conspiracy by Israel and international players against Hamas underway’.

Abu Zuhri reiterated his party’s commitment to the resistance against the Israeli occupation, whatever the cost for such resistance is.

Ehud Barak, Israel’s defense minister, was quoted Tuesday as telling the Israeli radio-Hebrew service, that Israel can not achieve the dream of Israel, America, Arab and European countries to diminish Hamas.

The Israeli army has been relentlessly involved over the past several months in large-scale attacks on the ruling Hamas party in Gaza, for what Israel says Hamas’s responsibility for the homemade shells fire, Palestinian resistance groups including Hamas continue to launch onto nearby Israeli towns.
