Ha­mas re­jects charge

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

BETH­LE­HEM: The Ha­mas move­ment has re­jected state­ments made by US Am­bas­sador to the UN Nikki Ha­ley on Tues­day, who urged the UN to des­ig­nate Ha­mas as a ter­ror­ist or­gan­i­sa­tion and placed full blame of the dire hu­man­i­tar­ian sit­u­a­tion in the be­sieged Gaza Strip on Ha­mas.

Ha­mas re­jected the state­ment, call­ing it “dan­ger­ous” and con­tribut­ing to the “grow­ing in­cite­ment cam­paign” against the move­ment, re­fer­ring to the diplo­matic cri­sis plagu­ing the Gulf coun­tries af­ter Saudi Ara­bia spear­headed a siege on Qatar, ac­cused it of fund­ing “ter­ror­ism” due to its sup­port of Ha­mas.
