Palestine Land Day
“The increasing role of the Palestinian resistance was, and will be, a major turning point in the Arab struggle. The Palestinian resistance has undertaken multifaceted work, carried the torch of resistance after the heavy darkness that prevailed in our land after the setback, restored hope in the hearts of millions of people from the ocean to the Gulf. Then, it made it clear to the whole world that the occupation of the land is very different from the destruction of the will and the occupation of the soul.”
