Press release issued by the Hamas Spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum
Regarding closure of Kerem Shalom crossing
Closing the Kerem Shalom crossing and depriving the Palestinian people in Gaza from the basic amenities of life by the Israeli Occupation is a crime against humanity added to its record of crimes against the Palestinian people.
The world and the region's silence and the absence of deterrent decisions promoted the Israeli Occupation to perpetrate more atrocities and crimes against the Palestinian people.
The Israeli revengeful measures against the Palestinian people reflects the extent of injustice and horrendous crimes committed against Gaza's residents which will have dangerous repercussions towards the Israeli Occupation
The Palestinians will continue sticking to their national stances and will continue their fight for their rights and demands, including ending the 12-year-old Israeli siege imposed on Gaza.
