Hamas chief calls on Arab leaders to “take a stand” amid soaring death toll in Gaza

Hamas political bureau chief Ismail Haniyeh has issued a call to the Arab and Muslim leaders to “take a stand” amid the soaring death toll among civilians in the Gaza Strip, according to a statement by the group on Tuesday.

“How much blood and massacres do you need in order for you to become angry for the sake of God and take a stand for history in the face of this permissibility of the blood of children, women and the elderly of Gaza?” Haniyeh said,

He added that the West’s pro-Israel position “has built a wall” between Western countries and the Arab and Muslim populations that will never go away.

Haniyeh further warned that Israel will never be safe until Palestinians can enjoy safety, freedom, and sovereignty.

Haniyeh’s statement comes as the death toll in Gaza has soared to over 5,000 and a humanitarian crisis continues amid Israel’s “complete siege” on the besieged enclave.

At least 15,000 people have been injured in Gaza, according to Palestinian health officials.
