Hamas condemns Kalandia killings

[ 01/08/2011 – 02:18 PM ]

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri has condemned the Israeli occupation forces raid in Kalandia near Ramallah that killed two young Palestinian men.

Clashes broke out there after the IOF came in to make arrests. The army said the young men were killed by ”uncontrolled” gunfire.

Abu Zuhri said the lethal raid calls for increased resistance in the West Bank and called on the Palestinian Authority security agencies to stop persecuting resistance forces and confiscating their weapons.

The fact that the attack took place on Monday the first day of the holy month of Ramadan demonstrates Israel’s ”aggressive nature” that lacks respect for the sanctities and setiments of the Muslims, Abu Zuhri pointed out.

In a separate statement, Hamas MPs in the West Bank also condemned the killings as a ”heinous crime”.

The MPs mourned the martyrs; Mutasim Adwan and Ali Khalifa’.

The statement is concluded with calls to the Palestinian factions to work to reconcile and achieve unity at the soonest time possible, saying national unity is the best response against Israel’s continued attacks.
