Hamas: US encourages Israeli crime
Hamas says the United States is encouraging Israeli criminality by supplying Tel Aviv’s war machine.
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said Washington is providing Tel Aviv with political, military, security, and financial support, the information office of the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, which is the Hamas movement’s armed wing, reported on Tuesday.
Assisting Israel at this time is equal to authorizing Tel Aviv to continue its crimes and human rights violations, Barhoum added.
He called attention to a deal, according to which the US is to provide the Israeli Air Force with cluster bombs and other war materiel.
During the previous US administration, the military assistance helped Tel Aviv prepare for the three-week Gaza war of December 2008 to January 2009.
The current US leadership reportedly continued to dispatch arms shipments to Israel following the war, which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians.
The United Nations has charged the Israeli forces with committing war crimes and crimes against humanity during the war.
