Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's death was only a minor loss to the anti-US resistance movement in Iraq, the Palestinian foreign minister said Thursday. Mahmoud Zahar, a member of the new Hamas-led government who has been meeting Pakistani officials in the capital of Islamabad, said the Palestinians are "blessing every effort to eliminate the existence of occupation." "We are dead sure that assassination of any of the people (like al-Zarqawi) who are resisting will not ... end the resistance," Zahar said at a press conference. Asked if al-Zarqawi's death northeast of Baghdad on Wednesday would harm the anti-coalition resistance in Iraq, Zahar said: "We have to wait and see to what degree this will impact the process of resistance. To my mind, resistance is too ... solid," he added.
