GAZA, (PIC)– Khaled Abu Hilal, the secretary general of the Ahrar movement, said that the Palestinian factions were keen on maintaining field calm in the Gaza Strip in light of Israeli preparations for a new war to evade its internal and external crises.

Abu Hilal was responding to a question by Al-Quds satellite TV channel after a meeting for the Palestinian factions in Gaza that focused on Israeli war threats.

He said that the factions’ decision to maintain calm along the Gaza borders was based on keenness to spare the Palestinian people a new Israeli aggression and not a sign of weakness. He added that the decision did not deny the Palestinians the right to retaliate to Israeli attacks.
