Hamas condemns zionist Saudi newspaper Al-Riyadh for calling it ‘terrorist
Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, has condemned a Saudi newspaper for describing it as a terror group, calling the label an insult to the Palestinian people.
“This dangerous designation is an affront to the reputation of our people, their history, and their struggle, and an insult to their courageous resistance defending Palestine, Gaza, and the dignity of the entire nation,” Hamas said in a statement posted on Saturday.
“Terrorist Hamas attends the inauguration of the Iranian president,” Al-Riyadh, a Saudi pro-government newspaper, headlined a story on the Hamas delegation visit to Iran on Saturday.
Hamas regretted that such language is being used by an Arab media outlet published in the capital of the Kingdom, “at a time when the Zionist enemy is pursuing crimes, aggression, and violations against the Palestinian people, Occupied Jerusalem, and al-Aqsa Mosque”, Hamas said.
Hamas added that “such odd positions run contrary to the known positions of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, its leadership, and its people who love and support Palestine, its resistance, and its legitimate rights.”
