HAMAS (Translated):

We call on the masses of our people in the West Bank, Jerusalem, the occupied interior (Palestine ’48) and abroad to rise up and go out with angry marches against the ongoing Zionist massacre against our people in the Gaza Strip.

We also call on the peoples of our Arab and Islamic nation and free peoples around the world to intensify the movement and activities condemning the war of genocide, and to pressure to sever relations with this rogue entity that continues to disregard the international community and UN resolutions, especially the recent decision of the International Court of Justice that demanded that it stop its aggression and invasion of Rafah.
