US Continuous Support for Israel Is Participation in the Israeli Massacres of Palestinian Children, Women, and Elderly Civilian Population, July 31, 2014

[ 31/07/2014 - 11:12 AM ]


Hamas Movement held on Wednesday the international community responsible for Israeli continued crimes in Gaza most recently was Al-Shuja'iya market massacre, considering its silence as a complicity in the crime.

In its statement, Hamas considered Al-Shuja'iya market massacre as a complete war crime and a cold-blooded murder of unarmed civilians.

Hamas’s statement held the Israeli military officials fully responsible for the deliberate killing and crimes committed against Palestinian civilians in Gaza Strip and also held the international community responsible for its continued silence and complicity with the occupation.

The statement strongly condemned the Arab weak official position and the continued international silence towards Israeli massacres in Gaza that make them involved in such bloody aggressions.

“Palestinian martyrs’ blood will not go in vain. We will prosecute all those involved in the endless crimes committed against our people”, according to the statement.

Resheq: USA an accomplice in Israel’s murder of Gaza children

[ 31/07/2014 - 11:00 AM ]


Member of Hamas Political Bureau, Ezzat Resheq, has held the USA partly responsible for the Israeli genocides against Gaza children, slamming Washington’s military assistance to the Israeli occupation all along the Gaza offensive.

“The American decision-makers are directly involved in such Israeli rivers of blood,” Resheq said in a brief statement posted on his Facebook page on Thursday.

The American Department of Defense admitted having approved the transfer of rounds of mortars and bombs to the Israeli occupation.

The Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said: “The USA is committed to the security of Israel. It is vital to assist Israel’s self-defense potentials.”

Amnesty International has called on the USA to stop exporting weapons to the Israeli occupation and to urge the UN to issue an international ban on restocking all parties to the Gaza conflict with arms.

Hamas urges UNRWA to demand int’l investigation into Israeli bloodbaths

[ 31/07/2014 - 10:48 AM ]


The Hamas Department of Refugee Affairs has called on UNRWA officials to assume their responsibilities vis-à-vis the Israeli genocides against UNRWA schoolchildren in Gaza, saying no way to remain silent over such notorious “rivers of blood.”

Hamas said in a statement: “Once again, the Israeli occupation renews its massacres on UNRWA headquarters just a few days after a former massacre. Such pre-meditated and cold-blooded mass-murders killed more than 15 children and left hundreds of others severely wounded.”

“We, officials in the Department of Refugee Affairs, hold the Israeli occupation responsible for such a pre-meditated terrorism that manifests of the hidden Israeli sadistic and barbarian nature unleashed against our innocent children. What we are witnessing today is a reiteration of the 2009 al-Fakhoura massacre and al-Gharbiya’s,” the statement added.

“The feelings of sympathy expressed by UNRWA officials are not enough to work out the tragedy. We call on UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krenpol to press ahead with an official UN appeal to launch an investigation into such ongoing Israeli crimes, particularly, but not exclusively, the recent genocide against our Jabaliya refugee children.”

“Any reluctance on the part of UNRWA officials would make of them undeniable contributors in such Israeli crimes,” Hamas concluded.
