Hamas MPs: The place for Blackwater is the courts, not Palestine

WEST BANK, (PIC)– Hamas MPs in the West Bank condemned the US for recently signing a security deal that would bring the Blackwater firm into the region, saying the place for the infamous security firm is the international criminal court in The Hague, and not Palestine.

The US State Department signed an 84 million dollar deal with a company tightly linked with Blackwater to provide security for foreign figures and delegations in the West Bank. Hamas lawmakers in the area forecast that the move was to strike resistance against the Israeli occupation.

The West Bank representatives called Blackwater’s presence in the region an endangerment to the lives of Palestinian citizens, saying they would be subjected to be fired at any time as happened in Iraq.

Palestinian freedoms have already been violated by the presence of US generals Mueller and Dayton, who came to the West Bank to train elements in the Palestinian Authority. The citizens, the MPs said, do not need any more risks that would threaten their already violated freedoms.

The MPs called on the US to nullify the contract and not use the lie of security to bring more security elements into Palestine.
