Hamas slams US decision to blacklist senior official Hammad
The Hamas Movement has strongly denounced the US state department for its unjust decision to add Fathi Hammad, one of its prominent officials in Gaza, to its list of global terrorists.
In a brief press release on Friday, Hamas condemned the decision as a “serious development reflecting the US administration’s absolute bias in favor of the Israeli occupation state.” It also said that this decision would provide further cover for Israel’s continued crimes against the Palestinian people.
The Movement urged the US administration to backtrack on its decision to blacklist Hammad and refrain from taking any step offending the feelings of the entire Arab nation. For his part, Fathi Hammad deplored the decision, describing the successive US administrations as the biggest supporter of the Zionist terrorism.
Hammad also described his designation as a terrorist as “another black page in the US administration’s infamous book and a blatant bias in favor of Israel’s terrorism and killing machine.” “Such decisions will never terrorize us or dissuade us from serving our people and defending their just rights, whatever the price,” he said.
