According to the Hamas chief, Kushner’s office asked some parties to talk to the Hamas leadership, and informed them they are ready to hold talks with the movement wherever they choose, be it in the Middle East or Europe.

“During the besiegement, Israel failed to disarm the resistance in spite of the normalisation deals, putting the movement on terror lists and demonising it, which is evidence that the resistance is expanding and rising… We do not seek war in the Gaza Strip but we do not fear it, and if the occupation considered launching new aggressions in Gaza, the war will be different.”
