Israel did not agree to a ceasefire and what it wants is to take back its prisoners and then resume the war, and this will not happen.

The administration of the Gaza Strip must be carried out by Palestinian will.

We welcome any Arab or Islamic forces if they come as liberator, and not to provide protection for the occupation.
