Hamas deplores Israeli envoy’s attack on Abbas at UNSC

13 February, 20

The Israeli ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon’s attack on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas during a UN Security Council session proves that national unity is the best option to face off the Israeli occupation, Hamas official Sami Abu Zuhri has said.

In a tweet on Tuesday evening, Abu Zuhri explained that such an attack “is an evidence that the language of compromise and negotiations will only prompt the [Israeli] occupation to show more arrogance and disregard for our people.”  

Speaking at Tuesday’s session at the UN Security Council, the Israeli envoy accessed Abbas of “spreading lies” at the UN hall, claiming: “Progress toward peace will not be made so long as President Abbas remains in his position.”
