Palestinian factions in Gaza Strip slammed the US President Donald Trump for calling Hamas Movement a terrorist group. Trump’s statement represents total bias to Israel which is a symbol of terrorism, the factions said.
In a statement on Tuesday, the factions opined that Trump’s statement represents a cover up for Israeli crimes. Hamas is a movement of national liberation and legitimate resistance of occupation as endorsed by international laws, they highlighted.
The factions strongly refused labeling Hamas as terrorist, saying that this gives Israel a green light to carry on with its aggression on the Palestinians.
The statement called on Arab and Muslim scholars and leaders to refuse Trump’s hostile statements against the Palestinian people and their legitimate resistance.
