Haniyeh stated that Hamas is open to any political negotiations, but only if the ongoing fighting ceases, humanitarian corridors are opened, and aid is allowed to enter Gaza.

"We are ready for political negotiations for a two-state solution with Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine," Haniyeh affirmed during his address.

Moreover, Haniyeh said Israeli forces are encountering difficulties in their ground foray into Gaza and downplaying the losses in their public statements.

"Israeli captives are subjected to the same destruction and death as our people," he added.

The Hamas leader also praised the support provided by resistance movements in Yemen, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon, emphasizing their assistance to Palestinian factions in their struggle.
