On rejecting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s statements about annexing the West Bank by many countries, Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qasem stated the following:
The vehement condemnation and rejection by many states and countries of the US Secretary of State’s remarks on the Israeli plans to annex the West Bank highlights that the US stance is out of tune.
The US administration insists on the positions in support of the Zionist colonial policy, thus participating in the Israeli violations against the Palestinian people. It also provokes the Arab and Islamic nations by taking such stances.
The Palestinian people, which has been fighting for freedom, will be victorious all the end. The Palestinians will not allow the Israeli occupation to settle in the West Bank or any part of Palestine.
