Hamas: Netanyahu trying to avoid international sanctions

[ 22/01/2011 – 10:29 AM ]

 

GAZA, (PIC)– Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said statements by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that his government would disengage from Gaza are an attempt to avoid legal repercussions for violations against Palestinian rights under international law.

“The Gaza Strip is still legally and practically under occupation. Under international law, Israel is obligated to provide the needs of the occupied people,” Abu Zuhri told the PIC on Friday.

Such Israeli resolutions, he added, are unacceptable. He asked the world community to assume its responsibility regarding such Israeli positions that violate the Palestinian people’s rights.

Netanyahu had announced during a visit by French foreign Minister Michel Alliot-Marie to Jerusalem that Israel will disengage from Gaza’s infrastructure.
