Hamas slams Israel for military escalations


Islamic Hamas movement, which rules the Gaza Strip, said on Saturday that the latest Israeli military escalation in the Gaza Strip aims at suffocating the impoverished enclave and increasing pressure on the movement.

Fawzi Barhoum, a Gaza-based Hamas spokesman, said in a statement sent to the press that the recent Israeli aerial and ground strikes on northern, eastern and southern Gaza Strip “is a clear evidence that the Israeli military aggression on the Gaza Strip has never stopped.”

“This aggression reflects the barbarian Israeli policy against the Palestinians amid tightening a suffocating siege imposed on the Gaza Strip for more than three years,” said Barhoum, who slammed what he termed “the international community’s silence towards this criminal escalation.” Xinhua
