GAZA, (PIC)– Hamas said on Monday that the report by Al-Jazeera correspondent Jivara Al-Budairi on Sunday about an alleged strike by detainees in Gaza was totally fabricated.

Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, said in a press release that the report, which shows relatives of four detainees standing in front of the Red Cross as if staging a sit-in in solidarity with their relatives, was void of any facts.

He said that first of all the Red Cross closes on Sundays, adding that when Hamas inquired about the issue from Al-Jazeera office in Gaza one of the employees said that she (Budairi) contacted the office and told them to assemble those people in that place and interview them and tried to display as if they were staging a sit-in.

The spokesman denounced Budairi’s act in which she intentionally mixed up facts to lighten the crime by the PA in Ramallah, asking Al-Jazeera to investigate the issue so as to preserve its media status and reputation.
