GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — The prime minister of the Hamas-run government in the Gaza Strip called Friday on Egypt to reconsider the Camp David peace accords with Israel.
Ismail Haniyeh said during noon prayers that Egypt would be better off if its leaders reconsidered or even canceled the US-brokered peace agreement.
He also called on Egypt to adopt a new strategy to deal with the Sinai, after an armed group’s kidnapping of soldiers led to the closure of the Rafah crossing for days.
“Gaza is not a sanctuary for fugitives. We do not cover up crimes,” Haniyeh said.
He also rejected a report by Amnesty International, released Thursday, that accused Hamas of war crimes in the November conflict with Israel.
He called the report politicized and said it equated the occupier and the victim. Resistance is based on morality and ethics, he added.
