Commenting on raising the Nazi flag next to the flag of Palestine at the Gaza eastern fence, member of Hamas International Relations Office Dr. Basem Naim stated the following:
Raising the Nazi flag next to the flag of Palestine at the Gaza eastern borders is condemned and rejected. We should block such an act, even if it is done by one person and does not represent the common sense of the Palestinian people. We have to stop similar acts because our conflict with the Israeli occupation is a freedom struggle against the colonial occupier of Palestine. In addition, such acts, even if done solely, inflict horrific outcomes on our just cause. Indeed, they are exploited by the Israeli occupation to distort our struggle for freedom and independence.
