At an event commemorating Hamas’s 35th anniversary at Al-Quds University in eastern Jerusalem, a call for jihad to liberate Palestine “from the river to sea” was issued.

Muhammad Hamada, Hamas’s spokesman for Jerusalem affairs, said in a pre-recorded address on Dec. 11 that “the [young] generation of the resistance is coming like a roaring river to free Jerusalem, and no occupier or invader will stop it,” according to a report by MEMRI.

On the anniversary, the Islamic Bloc, Hamas’s student organization, issued a statement asserting that Hamas will not abandon the road of jihad and resistance, regardless of casualties, until it “liberates all of Palestine” from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

Hamada praised Al-Quds University, calling it “the university of martyrs and resistance fighters.”

The Islamic Bloc released a statement saying: “With a flood of martyrs, prisoners, wounded and resistance that grows from day to day, Hamas, on the 35th anniversary of its founding, is advancing towards the liberation of all of Palestine from the Sea to the River, along with its [Palestinian] people and its [Islamic] nation.”
