As Jerusalem witnesses unrest due to the increased Israeli security cordons at the site of the Muslim holy site of Al-Aqsa Mosque, Hamas today launched a new media campaign to highlight the Palestinians’ right to resist the Israeli actions and do what they can to halt them.

The “resistance is not terrorism” initiative is based on Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations which provides for the right of an occupied people to stand up and fight back against the atrocities committed by the occupier.
