While referring to the surprise attacks last month, Hamad added, “[The attacks are] just the first time … Will we have to pay a price? Yes, and we are ready to pay it. We are called a nation of martyrs, and we are proud to sacrifice martyrs.” He said Hamas would be justified in its actions and accused the state of Israel of occupying Palestinian land. “We are the victims of the occupation,” he stated. “Period. Therefore, nobody should blame us for the things we do. On Oct. 7, Oct. 10, October one-million, everything we do is justified.” Hamad also claimed Islamist militants did not set out on Oct. 7 to target civilians and that the group faced what he called “complications.” Numerous videos that have been shared on social media have purported to show Hamas fighters indiscriminately massacring hundreds of civilians at the Re’im music festival. The brutality occurred shortly after thousands of rockets were fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip. The barrages were followed by a full assault as Hamas militants took to the air, the ground and the sea in the deadliest day in Israeli history. [firefly_poll] Hamad made it clear that Hamas does not simply want Gaza, but all of Israel. “The existence of Israel is illogical,” he said. “The existence of Israel is what causes all that pain, blood and tears.” The Israeli Defense Forces are currently rooting out Hamas terrorists and their leaders through a historic ground incursion into the territory.
