A delegation from Hamas in Lebanon, led by the politburo member Ezzat al-Rasheq, has visited Friday Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri to discuss the consequences of the labour ministry’s decision on Palestinian refugees.

The delegation included members of Hamas’ Arab and Islamic Relations Office Osama Hamdan and Ali Baraka and Hamas representative in Lebanon Ahmad Abdel Hadi along with the head of Lebanese-Palestinian dialogue committee Hassan Mneimna.

Al-Rasheq said that the Hamas delegation discussed with the Lebanese PM the bilateral relations and the latest developments related to the Palestinian situation in Lebanon’s refugee camps. 

During its meeting with al-Hariri, al-Rasheq added, the Hamas delegation reiterated that the Palestinian refugees should not be labeled as guest or foreign workers, as they a have  ‘political status that should not be targeted’.

Al-Rasheq reaffirmed Hamas’ position against the resettlement of Palestinian refugees.  

Sending its chief’s greetings to the Lebanese PM, the delegation highlighted head of Hamas Political Bureau Ismail Haniyeh’s keenness to maintain Lebanon’s security and stability and the Palestinian refugees’ rights on the Lebanese soil.

Al-Rasheq noted that al-Hariri has understood the delegation’s demands, stressing that this issue would be handled by the Lebanese government.
