Hamas top leader telephones key Pakistani leader and seek help against Israel

Khaled Meshaal, the leader of Hamas, engaged in a telephone conversation with Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the head of Jamiat-e-Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), addressing the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict, as reported by ARY News.

In an official statement, Aslam Ghauri, the spokesperson for JUI-F, conveyed that Khaled Meshaal updated Maulana Fazlur Rehman on the current situation between Palestine and Israel.

The JUI-F representative also noted that Meshaal commended JUI-F for commemorating the 'Al-Aqsa Flood,' which marked a surprise attack launched by the Palestinian group Hamas against Israel.

During this exchange, Maulana Fazlur Rehman expressed solidarity with the Palestinians during the conflict and affirmed their commitment to support Palestinian brothers and sisters under all circumstances. He also called upon human rights organizations to take notice of the Israeli brutalities in Gaza, which had resulted in the loss of over 1800 Palestinian lives.

Khaled Meshaal served as the leader of Hamas from 1996 until 2017 when he was succeeded by the current chief, Ismail Haniyeh.

Israel characterized the recent devastating Hamas attack as its equivalent of the 9/11 event. The operation's mastermind, Palestinian fighter Mohammed Deif, referred to it as the 'Al Aqsa Flood.'

The term 'Israel's most wanted man' was used in an audio tape broadcast as Hamas launched thousands of rockets from the Gaza strip, signifying that the attack was a response to Israeli actions at Jerusalem's Al Aqsa mosque.

The planning of this operation began in May 2021, following a raid on Islam's third holiest site, which stirred anger in the Arab and Muslim world. A source close to Hamas in Gaza estimates that this operation has claimed the lives of over 1,200 people in Israel.

Over two years later, the assault on Saturday became the most significant breach in Israeli defenses since the 1973 Arab-Israeli conflict, leading to Israel declaring war and launching retaliatory strikes on Gaza, resulting in the deaths of over 1800 people by the following Friday.

Mohammed Deif, a survivor of seven Israeli assassination attempts, the most recent occurring in 2021, seldom speaks and never appears in public. Therefore, when Hamas's TV channel announced his forthcoming address on that Saturday, it indicated that something of great importance was unfolding.
