Haneyya: Israeli occupation is ‘in decline’


GAZA, (PIC)– Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haneyya has said that the Israeli occupation is “in decline”, and that the Palestinians benefited most from the Arab Spring.

“The Zionist occupation is in decline, in light of the disappearance of its allies who protected it over the past decades,” Haneyya said on Sunday during a graduation ceremony at Al-Aqsa University near Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

In the speech, the premier also condemned the entry of ultra-Orthodox Jews into Al-Aqsa Mosque earlier that day, saying: “Al-Aqsa (Mosque) today is being exposed to attempts by Zionists to desecrate and break into it, in a desperate attempt to change the features of Jerusalem and take it from the Palestinians, Arabs, and Muslims.”
