Hamas Leader at Gaza Rally: War Not Over Yet

Thursday, 07 August 2014 08:58 AM EDT

GAZA CITY, Gaza City — A senior Hamas official has told supporters at a Gaza City rally that the war with Israel won't be over until the group's political demands are met.

The official, Mushir al-Masri, said Thursday that "our fingers are on the trigger and our rockets are trained at Tel Aviv."

Al-Masri spoke as Israel and Hamas were holding indirect negotiations in Cairo about new border arrangements for blockaded Gaza and extending a ceasefire.

Hamas demands that the blockade be lifted, while Israel insists the Islamic militant group disarm first.

Al-Masri says Hamas would never consider such a demand. He says that "we are not going to relinquish them until all our lands are liberated."

Thursday's rally drew several thousand supporters, the first gathering by Hamas activists since Gaza fighting began July 8.
