Hamas leader Isamil Haniyeh called for Palestinian civilians to die in Israel’s strikes against Hamas terrorists inside of Gaza.

The remarks come as Hamas commits war crimes by using civilians as human shields and lies about events that have unfolded during the three-week war, including its false claims that Israel bombed a hospital.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) captured remarks that Haniyeh made during an address on Thursday in which he falsely claimed Israel was committing a “new holocaust” against the Palestinians inside Gaza.

“I call on everybody – all the free people of the world, all the friendly countries, all the brotherly [Arab] countries, and all the allies – to exert all the necessary pressure, in all directions and in all forums, in order to end the aggression against Gaza, to stop this war against our children, women, and elderly, our mosques, our universities, and our homes,” he said. “This brutal aggression must stop. This new holocaust must stop.”

“I have said this before, and I say it time again: The blood of the women, children, and elderly… I am not saying that this blood is calling for your [help],” he continued. “We are the ones who need this blood, so it awakens within us the revolutionary spirit, so it awakens within us resolve, so it awakens within us the spirit of challenge, and [pushes us] to move forward.”

Israel’s strikes come after Hamas terrorists massacred more than 1,400 Israelis, wounded 5,200+ more, and took hundreds hostage during an unprecedented terrorist attack on October 7. Children were beheaded, babies burned alive, and women raped so violently that their dead bodies were discovered to have broken pelvises.
