: The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) has lashed out at allegations made by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) claiming that their fighters were trained to carry out cross-border attacks in Malaysia.
Senior Hamas leader, Khaled Qadoumi stressed that the Zionist regime is only spreading
propaganda messages as a ploy to cover up its weaknesses and atrocities in Gaza.
“Israel is experiencing a serious moral defeat on its military operations on Gaza, and this time they’re out to tarnish another Islamic country’s image for its support to the Palestinians,” said Khaled when contacted by Astro AWANI.
Hamas added that Malaysia has become a target of lies by Tel Aviv due to the extraordinary role adopted by Kuala Lumpur and its civil citizen in championing the Palestinian cause on global stage.
“Israel is a big liar. Why accuse Malaysia? Because Malaysia is an Islamic country that is bold and free and has always sided with the Palestinian people in Gaza who are suffering,” Khaled stressed.
As such, Hamas called on all Malaysians to not be influenced with the lies and propaganda by Israel.
Khaled was commenting on a report by the Jerusalem Post which claimed that members from Al-Qassam brigades were trained in Malaysia to carry out cross-border attacks.
He also added that the training was reportedly part of Hamas’ preparations to oppose Israel Defence Force (IDF) ground offensive in the Gaza Strip.
Shin Bet has also accused Hamas commando unit was scheduled to train others in various combat skills including powered parachutes and paragliding -- in its attempt to penetrate the southern of Israel.
Khaled added that Hamas will continue to persevere in the face of the persistent attacks by the Tel Aviv regime on Gaza.
“We have no other means of defending ourselves. Hamas will continue to defend Gaza and by attacking strategic Israeli military targets,” he said.
In addition to its guerrilla movement, Hamas’ political initiatives and international diplomacy will continue with the hopes of ending Israeli brutality.
