Terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip, known as the "popular resistance committees," issued a joint statement in response to Antony Blinken's visit to Israel.

In a statement released by the Palestinian Information Center, the US Secretary of State was labeled as "the primary obstacle to reaching an agreement to end the war and genocide of the Palestinian people in Gaza."

"The Palestinian resistance will not compromise under pressure, maintaining an unwavering position. They emphasize that a complete halt to aggression and massacres by the Zionist-American forces in Gaza is a prerequisite for any peace deal and prisoner exchange," the statement declared.
