Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh on Friday said his Islamist group that runs the Gaza Strip would not heed any calls to disarm, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

Israel, along with the United State and the European Union, have called for the "demilitarization" of terrorists groups in Gaza as a term for establishing lasting peace.

During his remarks at Friday prayers at the site of Gaza's al-Susi mosque, Haniyeh said Hamas's arms were "sacred" and demanded that the calls for disarmament also apply to Israel.
