She continued: "We confirm what we have repeatedly declared, that our resistance is disciplined by the controls and instructions of our true Islamic religion, and that the targeting of its military wing is against the occupation soldiers and those who carry weapons against our people."

Regarding the refusal of the United States and European countries to prosecute Israel before the International Court of Justice, Hamas said: “We call on these countries, especially the United States, Germany, Canada and Britain, if they are truly concerned with justice as they claim, to declare their support for the court’s path to investigate all the crimes committed in Palestine.” "occupied."
