Commenting on the shooting on Palestinian MP Azzam Salhb’s house and car in the occupied West Bank, Hamas stated the following:
Hamas strongly condemns shooting member of the Legislative Council Azzam Salhb’s house and car in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron on Sunday, 17 March.
Hamas holds the Palestinian Authority and its security forces responsible for this appalling crime, as it followed the PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ decision to dissolve the Legislative Council. In additions, this crime, which is not the first of its kind, is an outcome of incitement and crackdown campaigns led by the PA security forces against Hamas officials and members of the Legislative Council. .
Hamas confirms that all acts of violence and intimidation inflicted on Palestinian MPs and Hamas officials in the occupied West Bank will never dissuade them from performing their national duty towards their people and just cause and from foiling any scheme aimed at targeting the Palestinian rights, constants, and security.
