Following is the full text of the Message: H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, U.A.E. Foreign Minister, "We seize this opportunity to extend to your self esteem personality, the sisterly country the United Arab Emirates leadership and people, sincere thanks and appreciation to the blessed efforts that you are making to alleviate the suffering of our people, especially in the blockaded Gaza Strip. We also commend the humanitarian and relief projects that are met here with great satisfaction among our people, of which the most recent was the field hospital, which is a hallmark in the dedication of the United Arab Emirates to the Palestinian people. We also note the quick response to stand by our people in time of war and during the Israeli aggression.
We recall the white hands of the U.A.E. and its people since the era of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan - may God have mercy on him - who left a legacy of humanitarian work. He was a role model global humanitarian personality. That legacy has been sustained by the U.A.E. to this day.
We reiterate our highly appreciation to all the assistance of the United Arab Emirates to the people of Palestinian. We are ready to provide what it takes to ensure the success of your mission.
We are happy about the presence of U.A.E. delegation among our people in the Gaza Strip. And we hope the delegation will continue its efforts in the management of the field hospital to offer the best service to those affected by the war.
We assure you of our keen desire to keep the relationship with the United Arab Emirates at its best so as to enhance the Arab solidarity and fraternal spirit, and give more support and backing to the Palestinian people, and their just cause as well.
I seize this opportunity to congratulate you on the advent of Eid Al Fitr.
Thanks Ismail Abdulsalam Haniyeh, former Prime Minister of Palestine, Deputy Head of Hamas's Political Bureau
