Hamdan highlighted that despite some shortcomings, the recent UN Security Council resolution confirms a permanent ceasefire and the withdrawal of the Israeli Occupation, but it will not materialize unless agreed upon by the occupation.

Hamdan noted that while there are points in the resolution that Hamas does not accept, the fundamental aspects are positive.

Earlier, Hamas senior spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri confirmed to Reuters that the movement has accepted the Security Council resolution and is ready to negotiate the details.
